By Samantha CC
For the Full Buck Moon, Howl is pleased to present Samantha CC’s Untitled (Embodiment, Disembodiment and Desire). Performance on the edge, Full Moon Shows showcase young talent and seasoned performers channeling the spirit of the Alien Comic, Tom Murrin. Streaming from midnight to midnight on Howl! Happening’s homepage.
Samantha CC says about Untitled:
The body enforces limitations on the soul, and can sometimes feel like a trap, and yet it is also a site of pleasure and rich human experience. The shells and water in the glass container represent motion and restlessness inside the container of the body. The transparency of the container calls into question whether the barrier between physical and metaphysical is superficial or not.
My art practice incorporates performance, writing, video, and sound. For this piece, my materials are shells, the sky, water, my hands, and a giant glass urn.
