LEARNING TO CRAWL
A lightweight frame, a hand sewn shell made from mom’s medical paraphernalia, protects the fleshy body beneath. Baby oil soaks stockings at the knees, elbows and tops of feet. Improvised choreography of snail dances executed across the living room floor. Movement connects her to the somatic resonance tuned by trauma, vibrating beneath the surface. Bound by stockings, contained by the performance of this vessel, holding space for her under this skin.
