SUMMIT (FOR EVEREST)
/ SARA MORAWETZ PERFORMANCE
12th February – 16th February, 2023
During her extended residency at The Lock-Up, Sara Morawetz will be completing a durational performance within the historical cells.
SUNDAY 11AM – 1PM
WEDNESDAY – THURSDAY 10AM – 12PM
During her extended residency as part of The Lock-Up’s Artist in Residence Program, Morawetz will be completing a durational performance within The Lock-Up’s historical cells. Summit (for Everest) is a durational work that completes the winding of an 8,848.86 m (29,031.7 ft) ball of string –– a length equal to the world’s highest mountain. Questioning our perception of scale (and the act of scaling great heights) Morawetz compresses the epic into the ordinary –– shifting the measure of distance, time, and endurance-based labour toward an act of absurdity.
Remnants of the performance will be on display through out the duration of the exhibition.
