In "Pigeon House," the artist deconstructs a gallery wall to prepare her stage. During her live performance, she breaks the wall, weaves herself through it, and so negotiates its given limitations, both physically and psychologically. This piece takes reference from the "Colombier" neighborhood's varying layers of history: pigeons used as messengers, the function of military compounds, and the relationship between architectural collapse, & social development.
