The Last Swim
Skowhegan School of Art, Maine

Collective performance the day before leaving Skowhegan School of Painting. A group of artists from the class of 2021 entered the lake with soluble paper to be absorbed by the water. The performance unfolded as a ceremony of closure, a gift to the place, offering our memories to the lake. It is a poetical gesture of archiving the experiences in the landscape, experiences that won't disappear because the water will contain them. The power of absorption of water is a reminder through our bodies that this place leaves something in us but also we all leave something in this place; even when this experience ends it will remain.
