Crush ~ Keep is a durational object/performance piece created during a month long residency within the gallery space of Black Iris Gallery in Richmond, VA during October of 2014. Visitors were asked to donate any type of fabric (tablecloths, fabric scraps, old clothes, etc.) to become part of an ever-growing garment that recorded both the space itself and my interactions with people inside of it. A metaphor for the beauty and burden of constructing and maintaining relationships, this garment was then worn during my Exit Performance on October 17, 2014, during which I cut and pulled the garment free from the gallery space. Spectators chose to follow me as I exited the space and walked 4 blocks to the Jefferson Hotel.
