THEADORA WALSH


hello! I am a writer and video artist who makes work in the intersection of those fields. I’m into the physicality of language, its existence in time, and the tension between speech and its documentation. My work amplifies the subjectivity of language by creating poetic images that hinge on the edge of recognition and alienation--legibility and incomprehension.

The boys invited me to weed the squash field. We pretended it was harder than it really was. Romanticized the mixing of our labor with the land.

The idea of fire being used by prehistoric men fills me with hate. It’s not the men, or their stage in the evolutionary process, it’s fire being contained to a pit, enclosed in a perimeter of hairy hands.

Like death, but not quite. I want something animalistic and attune.
