Unwind presents seven performance art events in one evening. Each makes a stimulating inquiry into familiar materials. The body becomes an instrument. Music and silence are translated into movement. The subconscious is written and the writing becomes drawing. Routine becomes uneasy. Pop songs give way to catharsis. Social space becomes the site of vulnerability. Follow these trajectories into the unknown.

My art is grounded in the belief of one universal energy which runs through everything: from insect to man, from man to spectre, from spectre to plant from plant to galaxy. My works are the irrigation veins of this universal fluid. Through them ascend the ancestral sap, the original beliefs, the primordial accumulations, the unconscious thoughts that animate the world.

-Ana Mendieta
