โ€”as poemโ€”

The body wonders what it needs to feel, comfortable: the love we fall into is the egg.

Memory scrambles and settles into the body. Sitting across from one another, we try to pluck it out, put it on the table. To eat? To share? To act and form the symbol through which all of the work would spill, and keep spilling. A leaky container is a container, and what we are. A leaky container slips, is your mouth. You are here because you are hungry, and we are, too.

What you are experiencing is a poem, is the body as a pocket of eggs.

โ€” as processโ€”

Annas is pleased to present ๐˜ข ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ๐˜ฌ, ๐˜ด๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ, the culmination of an intensive, collaborative residency by Caroline Dahlberg, Azalea Henderson, Mariel Harari, and Maggie Wong. Through weeks of popcorn readings, material research, mind-mapping, and body stretches, the four multidisciplinary artists built ๐˜ข ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ๐˜ฌ, ๐˜ด๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ, a poetic environ that tends to process, to containers, to eggs, and to loss.

The works present in the gallery are specific and evolving, serving as both objects of an exhibition, and the environment of dinner programming. Each element builds a visual language for the artists, a result of the cohortโ€™s new modes of collaborative making together. As such, the works grow into a material representation of what happens between these four individuals when tasked with exploring their capacity to build a world, together.
