the ground beneath her feet
2017

performed at the wulf at Coaxial on 10.11.17
sound by Eric Heep, performed by Carole Kim and Rachel Yezbick

Two performers grapple within an enclosed, transparent latex shell, as the sounds of latex on skin are amplified throughout the space. Using latex as a proverbial "skin", this piece looks at the yearning for shape and the resulting assault against the surface when the desired form is untenable. the ground beneath her feet takes its title from Salman Rushdie’s book of the same name, a novel that reflects on the trauma of breaking through into new worlds, metamorphoses and aspiration. “…we’re rushing back into our skins and war paint, postmodern into premodern, back to the future" (Rushdie 1999).

the wulf is an experimental music venue located in downtown Los Angeles.
