Trophies

Introduction

 

Trophies is a unique collaboration between sculpture, dance and music that explores issues of identity and transformation from living being to hunter's trophy. Collecting trophies is a common social pursuit. Objects of perceived and real value are used as icons to express one's identity. Trophies are currency of social stature. In this performance piece, establishing and collecting hunting trophies serve as an analogy.

The piece premiered in February 2014 at the Erie Art Museum in Erie, Pennsylvania.
