The Cage Is A Stage (Swell), 2017, installation & performance, 10 minutes
With: Joe Seely
Production: Southern Exposure, San Francisco

One scene from The Cage Is A Stage is isolated in a gallery setting as part of a group exhibition that considered our complex relationships with animals. What is revealed about human dynamics when we use other species to define our humanness? Here, a skilled method actor enacted attempts to transgress human structures of control by dismantling an installation representing the artist’s studio.
