Diana Kersey and Kambri Hernandez

Create. Collapse. Create. is a performance work inspired by the perseverance, struggles, successes and beauty of loved ones who live with mental health disorders. The performance involved working glowing clay and water illuminated by UV lighting on a pottery kick wheel until it becomes precariously thin, out of balance, and ultimately collapses. To create a vessel, work it until it collapses, and then to persevere by creating it again mirrors the daily struggle of mental illness. The performance ends with a beautiful vessel.

Hernandez & Kersey performed November 11th on the grounds of the Carver Community Cultural Center.
