In Spill, the artists raise questions regarding land, belonging and place, and engage with the complex challenge of how to render proximity and involvement.
The performance begins with a thick layer of salt that is spread evenly onto the ground in a rectangular field. A line of sump oil cuts through the rectangle and as it seeps into the salt, the incision slowly expands. The artists perform separately but together, aware of the weight of these materials both physically and metaphorically.
