About Schaefer's Residency at BCA:
Sandrine Schaefer will be developing a series of socially-engaged performance artworks to be sited in public parks throughout Boston where large populations of geese reside. Actions that make up these performances are sourced from goose gathering behaviors observed in these locations and human activist strategies of assembly. Sandrine will use the residency period and resources to develop potential performance sites, collaborative techniques and performance structures, and make objects to be used in the performances. Through this work, Sandrine intends to draw attention to the collision between human and non-human life in sites designated for human passing and recreation. Moments of public touch throughout Sandrine’s residency include observational art walks which will generate content for these performances and engage the public in creative actions and observational exercises used in their artistic research.
