Labor Of Love

Labor Of Love
Live Interactive Performance 
Duration: 1 hour 
Performed at the Satellite Art Show 
Curated by: Queen Dukes

Kathie Halfin’s durational performance Labor Of Love reflects on personal and politically charged experiences of immigration associated with identity stereotypes, access, and belonging. In Labor Of Love Kathie explores modes of resistance to oppression through endurance, exposed vulnerability, and personal storytelling. 

Through reenactment of daily routines, visceral encounter with the clay, and emotionally charged and often conflicting cultural experiences that she conveys, Kathie reclaims her mixed identity and her immigrant experience. In this performance, Kathie questions how the dominant language and intuitive judgments about the immigrants could be upturned and questioned.
