From 2015 - 2018, Babette developed two large scale works in collaboration with artists and performers. For both projects 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.
At the core of Babette's work is a commitment to long form, site-specific works developed with an ensemble of people that exist for extended periods of time. The projects build on one another becoming physical collages that are visual narratives involving performance, endurance scores, photo, and video.
The roving ensemble includes a group of nomadic movement practitioners and visual artists engaged in explorations of chaos and subtle disruptions through empowering, 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.
