Contain Yourself
PERFORMANCE-PRESENTATION
Sat. March 30, 2024 4PM
Link to Smack Mellon page ︎



In conjunction with their solo exhibition in Gallery Two, This is as far as I can take you, Smack Mellon presents a performance-driven presentation by the artist, Sunny Leerasanthanah. As a performance, Contain Yourself narrates the process of creating a live and living archive while interweaving stories linked to the themes and contents of the exhibition. Using storytelling, projected images, time, text, and documentation, Sunny meanders through topics including accidental archiving, amateur camcording, fixations on ghosts, and how to convince the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services of an urgent event.
