The performance, developed in conjunction with Moulton’s recent video, Mindplace Thoughtstream, comes woven through some of the artist’s video works for a layered multimedia experience of the “anxiety and dreams associated with bio medical advance and alternative medicine”.
The Californian-born artist, whose background lies in Art and Anthropology, has made a lifelong project of her ongoing video/performance series, Whispering Pines, in which her alter ego, Cynthia, is healed by an “Avon lady/witch-healer”. Building on themes of self-healing and the “hysterics of personal improvement”, Moulton’s recent explores the gaps between the catharsis and cliché intrinsic to quests of self-improvement.
