Axis Mundi Yantra, 2009
Axis Mundi Yantra premiered at MAGIC & SCUM, a one-night-only performance event held on the evening of December 17th, 2009 at the New School.
This action-meditation quested to dislodge and realign the central axis of power—the patriarchy—through brutal extrusions of bodily gesture upon
hyper-realized phallic form. By attempting to subdue sculpture through acts of seduction and destruction, the ritual asserted transformational resistance
to socialized oppression. The outcome was one of inner healing and emancipation through renewed senses of justice and self-empowerment.
