attending to the wound: a wake, a waiting, a witnessing is a performance activating a collaborative installation of Hieroglyphs of metaphysical lacerations, drawing from previous works A Poetic of Living 2019 by LaRissa Rogers and Sueños Fértilez 2,018 by artist Jackie Amézquita. Using Black Care by Calvin Warren as a point of departure, the performance starts at sunset and works through grief, solidarity, and weight transfer. The performance addresses the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.
