extr.action - a desert installation

Marks made by the desert on a body (raw)
Marks made by a body on the desert (shallow)
Marks made by a history on the land (heavy)

The recontextualization of my body in the Chilean Atacama Desert, brought back to Seattle as marks and memories of an attempted reconciliation, reformation, atonement. The scratching away at myself as artifact of my familial past. 

Installation by Jocelyn Beausire, as culmination of recent residency at La Wayaka Current
