womxn’s rites and solid objects
In March Of 2020, We Met With Heather Kravas And Victoria Haven In Georgetown To Discuss A Potential Collaboration Between Prairie Underground And Their Work Solid Objects.
Introduction by Davora
The print is a photograph of a sweater worn interchangeably by the dancers in the first iteration of Solid Objects at Oxbow. As a costume for the third iteration, it both records and acknowledges the original by repeating it as a memory or trace onto the new costume. It also refigures the body of the wearer to become another body, a result of the trompe l’oeil effect of the print of the sweater photographed on one of the dancers. The final body is the new troupe of dancers, eight in total, who will be disbursed into the world in these shirts, continuing to perform Solid Objects.
