RISING is an 8-hour durational performance and installation piece employing time, yeast, sugar, flour, water, oil, fire and sweat. RISING is a celebration of the peasant and the domestic. Bread takes time. Bread never comes out the same way twice. Bread requires you to be at home. Bread fails if you rush it. Bread sometimes fails for no reason at all. It is mysterious. Bread making is ultimately a subversive act.
