Parsons Paris.

Heather Weston


Pit is an ongoing, site-specific performance in New Jersey. The work takes place at the bottom of a field, with two properties meeting in the middle. The performance acts as a method of mourning through the symbolic action of digging. Through self-induced labor, personal thresholds and endurance are explored. In marking the land, an ownership is claimed in preservation of a history that will slowly dissolve through time.
