Most Of The Time I Sleep With My Feet Out From Under The Covers, 2021, performance and trace monotype printmaking on microfiber polyester bedsheet

Most Of The Time I Sleep With My Feet Out From Under The Covers uses trace monotype printing to capture the movements the artist made in her sleep through a series of 7 performed full nights of sleep and naps from February 22, 2021 to March 3, 2021 in varied locations as listed; in her own bed, a friend’s bed, on the grass outside her apartment, on her living room couch, and in her car. Each session of sleep is recorded in a different color to distinguish the traces from each other. Amidst the overwhelming isolation the past year has brought, by inviting the audience to witness the evidence of the private performance of sleep, the artist creates a shared sense of intimacy between herself and the viewer, putting on display the details of a daily personal ritual.
