X – it’s the point where you cross with yourself. The place where you stop and look at yourself, and care. Poison ivy makes you stop, you’re at a crossroad, you can choose friend or foe, love or fear. Love can be another life lesson. Fear can be the closest friend delivering you a love letter. And this performance is the collaboration between Plants X Wisdom | Love X Fear | I X U | I X Me
Aki Goto is a multimedia artist. Her ongoing conceptual project “NOW” explores the relationships with her past, present, and future (with particular emphasis on the present) through the use of a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, video, clothing, installation, sound, performance, and also herbalism since she moved upstate NY from the city. Her latest show, one of her ongoing projects “Shirotento Orchestra” had the 3rd performance at Old Dutch Church in April 2019, to celebrate Genderqueer’s Day – this is her performance series which always includes audiences as players and keeps changing its theme and structure depending on the present moments she and the world holds.
