A Sense of Place
A Sense of Place
site-specific space alteration/performance, documentation of performance

“Metamorphosis and ritual also inform Justin Rabideau’s works. Assembled out of tools and photographic evidence, A Sense of Place, memorializes the artist’s soil-raking performances. With customized implements, Rabideau proceeded to erase his footsteps while leaving marks that show his passage exactly. Like a farmer who steadfastly tills the land, the artist describes the direct impact of his relationship to the land on his outlook and sense of self.”
