At my stay in the residency Casa Wabi, I worked with different groups of the community introducing ways of notate the simple act of inhalations and exhalations. I put the act of breathing – an action that unites us all – at the centre of the work. It marks the passage of time through mutual, hieratic, and silent contemplation. I invites the viewer to participate, the work becomes an experience of simultaneous presence that takes the form of “breath-sharing” in the Marking Breath performance. Not to align them in the same cadence, but to observe their irregular, informal, and singular qualities from person to person.
