with Ash Williams
Charlotte-based performance artists Ash Williams + April Marten explain, “We are creating this piece and working together as a visual reminder of difference. We are two bodies and two perspectives who have merged into one art piece. We aim to investigate and test the limits of our own subjectivity and we aim to speak to the world about the multi-dimensions of racism. Some of our questions include: What can we charge the audience with? What can we tell people to expect out of themselves? Our hope is that the work speaks to the importance of process and the labor of questioning.
