Event description
Join A4 for a featured presentation from 2021 Jadin Wong Fellow, Annie Heath and projection artist/collaborator Shannon Brooks on Jan. 25!

About this event

The Asian American Arts Alliance (A4) invites you to a virtual ConversAAtion with A4’s 2021 Jadin Wong Fellow, Annie Heath and projection artist Shannon Brooks on their collaboration on Heath’s newest multi-disciplinary work, Departure Study of Mother/land Fabric. Heath’s solo performance seams pieces of movement, textile, text and projection installations of images and letters, exposing fantasies of an unknown mother. As a transracial adoptee, Heath expresses the loss of roots, summoning subconscious and fabricated memories of mother/child, land/home using repeated long-form cellular improvisations of prenatal developmental pathways.

This ConversAAtion will feature an exclusive 15-minute excerpt of Departure Study followed by a discussion between Annie Heath and Shannon Brooks on their creative collaboration, use of archival materials, and creating dialogue between space and time, past and present to help get at the root of Heath’s questions, “Was forgetting a calculated effort?” or “How can you hold onto what you cannot recall?”, with audience Q&A to follow.

This event is free to the public. RSVP is required to attend.
