Pushing It
Becky Welter-Nolan

6 - 28 October
Opening Reception: Friday, October 5, 6pm

Pushing It is a performative project by Becky Welter-Nolan featuring a roughly 200 lb quilted soft-sculpture “boulder” entitled RockyIII pushed uphill in true Sisyphean style. Testing the body and space through physical exertion, tension, and force, the work critiques labour and the narrative of success, navigating between endurance and futility.
