Always Already is an 8-hour performance installation by Karen Christopher and Tara Fatehi, exploring the weaving together of plant, human, and machine.
Drawing on practices of weaving, two people construct a machine of wood, rope, masses of sheep wool, and 100 Forgotten Questions. The room turns into a loom, where small songs and dances encapsulate themes of patience, perseverance, and continuous becoming.
Audiences can come and go throughout the 8-hour installation, which references the length of a working day. They’re encouraged to watch the 7th hour (5.30 – 6.30pm) in full, when the performance takes on a thicker weave. This 1-hour performance focuses on transformation: ongoing processes of becoming, the hybridity of life inherent in the world, fluid identity, and acceptance. Singing of human beings becoming other things.
