Break Pot: Benefit Street

Performed on 11.08.2018

Born in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and raised in the United States, Sanford holds a Visual Arts degree from Brown University. Her work references the deep personal significance of family separation, cultural destruction, and death associated with the Cambodian genocide in the 1970s, and the long, slow process of reconstruction in the decades that have followed. She investigates the intersection of trauma and healing, the healing processes of repetition, recollection, and repair, and the defragmentation of history.

Part of the exhibit, Repair and Design Futures, Break Pot: Benefit Street is a shortened version of a six-day durational performance, Full Circle.
