#access
chalk markers, ladder, 2019

#access is a performative drawing made on the window panes of the Hubbell gallery in San Francisco. The performance was created in collaboration with the artist Jillian Crochet.

 

While I draw houses on the word #homeless, Jillian, suffering from a motor disability, draws stairs on the word #access.

When I reach the maximum extension of my arm, I use a physical ladder to continue drawing to the apex of the window.

Jillian can't use the ladder, and so her creativity has to stop in front of that barrier.
