She sat on the bank and drank oblivion of her former life.

Suppose that a young woman passing between life and death, in an imaginary liminal moment, is witness to the convergence of her memory and biography. We hear her blood, nerves and viscera stop, and in that space - between their suspension and her ending - her life is told by two friends.

Indelible is a collaborative performance and installation project that exists in two states: Evening performances incorporate movement, animation, sound and light, while the installation itself can be experienced as a trace of the performed work during daytime gallery hours.
