Container for a precarious record explores the propensity of wax as a material for record-keeping. This work examines the internalized disciplines and postures of the viscera and limbs, shaped by the discursive institutional forces acted upon the social body. Utilizing process-based intervention with performance ephemera, found metal, and text, this work is a meditation on the tensions produced and augmented by the body’s negotiation with agency and docility, safety and containment.
