Worry Lines

Ongoing, 2023—

New York, Toronto

Worry Lines is a wearable art piece and ongoing performance that makes visible the anxiety-producing experience of living within systems of power that conflict one’s identity. This tension is explored through the material process of rope coil technique, guerrilla performance, and the manifestations of “worry” as an embodied state and a political tactic. Over time, the repetition of certain facial expressions results in worry lines. The wearable piece emphasizes these physical bearings of emotion while its wearing/performance is an activation: an agitation designed to worry-back.
