This performance is part of a greater piece of work entitled Reflections from “Out of the Current”, an exhibition at the Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford in 2017.
As part of the exhibition, vinyl lettering was installed on the exterior windows of the gallery, excerpts from a letter I wrote to my husband while experiencing severe and chronic pain. Inside the gallery, guests were invited to share their own thoughts, secrets, or notes that they wish they told someone, to me anonymously. I then read these notes out loud at the end of the exhibition. Guests were able to indicate if they wanted them to be read out loud or for me to be the only one to read them. This cathartic action allows the viewer to move forward.
