Performance | Break Pot: Benefit Street
Thurs. Nov 8, 12-4pm
RISD Museum
, Farago Gallery
224 Main Street
Amy Lee Sanford '95, a Cambodian-American artist, performs Break Pot: Benefit Street, in conjunction with the exhibit, Repair and Design Futures. This powerful performance is a shortened version of a six-day durational performance, Full Circle, evoking individual, social, and cultural repair. Born in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and raised in the United States, Sanford holds a Visual Arts degree from Brown University. Her work references the deep personal significance of family separation, cultural destruction, and death associated with the Cambodian genocide in the 1970s, and the long, slow process of reconstruction in the decades that have followed. She investigates the intersection of trauma and healing, the healing processes of repetition, recollection, and repair, and the defragmentation of history.
