Lift/Carry/Hold is about the subtle negotiation that occurs in the moment when one person takes on the responsibility for the welfare of another. Trust, faith and intimacy are all a part of this work.

Lift/Carry/Hold, 2010
Lift/Carry/Hold, 2010

I invite participants to allow me to lift and hold them for as long as my strength allows. The time that each person spends in my grasp varies depending on their size and weight and my endurance at a given time.

There is no speaking during the sequence and all of the physical mechanics of the lift are navigated in silence at the moment of each interaction.
