Five fishing nets filled with grimy bottles hang from the ceiling of a hall, water dripping from them to rectangular pools built on the wood-panelled floor. The deck and the pools signify the ships that carried millions of slaves across the Atlantic, to work in cotton plantations in America and sugarcane fields in the Caribbean. The bottles—around 2,000 of them—contain colonial records of individuals who were forced to live and work in lands alien to them.

On 4th February, Lorene Bouboushian performed in Biennale artist Aryakrishnan's space, 'Sweet Maria Monument', at Aspinwall.

Lorene Bouboushian presented an interactive, partially improvised performance weaving text, sound, movement and action art.  The work reflected on cannibalized identities and broken (queer/creative) community in the age of "woke" ethics.

Lorene Bouboushian is a genderqueer artist originally from rural Texas, with family ties to Lebanon and Armenia. They work within dance, experimental music/noise, and performance art. They build a rhizomatic practice through visible forays into performances and workshopping, and less visible forays into curating, writing, dialogue, modes of care and support, and resource sharing. They utilize “self-exposure and vulnerability in real, risky ways” [CultureBot, 2011], and produce “thought-provoking commentary on social limits” [Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2016]. They are currently leading the UNDOING AND DOING Social Practice Collective.

Aryan was part of the core team that built Artreach from its earliest days. He left us a year ago to pursue his own practice and projects. So happy to see him as one of the 90 or so artists of the KMB 2018 with his moving work Sweet Maria Monument.
