Our traumatic memories can continue to haunt us, even, or especially, if we try to avoid them. The harder we push away the memory, the more the thoughts tend to intrude on our minds. During this performance, the visitor will be invited to share their trauma in one to three words. The visitor can write their own trauma upon the artists shoulders or may choose to write their trauma on a piece of paper and exchange this for the word of someone who preceded them. This way the artist will literally carry other people’s burdens.
