DESCRIPTION

"It follows therefore that there must exist a Being of which the property is to nihilate Nothingness, to support it in its being, to sustain it perpetually in its very existence, a being by which nothingness comes to things. . . The being by which Nothingness comes to the world must be its own Nothingness. . . . It remains to learn in what delicate, exquisite region of Being we shall encounter that Being which is its own Nothingness.”
–Jean-Paul Sartre, “The Origin of Nothingness”

Each of these artists risks presenting performance-oriented artwork (Being) that is a manifestation of Nothingness, with the possibility that through this Nothingness, Being itself will be validated and elevated.
