In Conversation with my Adult Daughter, a mother cradles her adult child surrounded by tall trees in a forest. The daughter rests in complete trust as her weight becomes difficult to sustain.
Rachel Echenberg’s video series Conversations With My Family, attempts to gage the scale, weight, form and force of intimate interactions. This project measures familial connections against a variety of landscapes. The bodies create a disruptive presence within each natural setting, fluctuating our sense of time and scale. Echenberg presents one-to-one performances with her immediate family members. Each non-verbal conversation requires endurance and patience to structure a portrait of the relationship.
