Steer a steady ship, 7 hour performance, Lottie Consalvo
Steer a steady ship was a performance piece which involved the artist undergoing seven hours of Chinese water torture in memory of a period of anxiety that the artist suffered twelve months ago. Lying on a bed above which was suspended a boat suspended in mid-air dripping black liquid on her forehead, Consalvo bravely revived the fear, torture, loneliness and despair of the anxiety that kept her awake at night.

“The main idea is to show a new way of “infographic” drawings. Because everything we see is biological, mathematical or geological information. It can also be cultural patterns or any other thing. Complexity Graphics works are based on mathematical simplicity and harmony. I would describe them as infographic abstracts. This mathematical style helps me to illustrate everything from biological cell to the space and meditative worlds. That’s why I admire by math, because it’s everywhere and nowhere.” -Tatiana Plakhova, Moscow, Russia
