Selected Artist Project

Selected Curatorial Projects

From 2017-2019, Babette developed a large scale series [Swimming in Air While Rooted in Water ] which produced a collection of chapters showcased over an extended period of time. For the project the south western coast of Washington (Oyster Bay) was the site of research, exploration, and performance. Subsequent performances and installations were shown in Seattle, Portland, and Los Angeles. 

The project was developed in collaboration with artists and performers. The ensemble included a group of nomadic movement practitioners and visual artists engaged in explorations of chaos and subtle disruptions through empowered, thoughtful, risks.

The visual narratives use surrealism as a way to subvert reality, roping together energetically authentic sources of pain, pleasure, and power while pursuing freedom through non-linear, psycho emotional releases that cultivate mystery and an unknown journey for the viewer.
