Rebecca Jagoe will offer a performative response to Matthew Verdon's current project at KELDER, Vestigial Traits and Evolutionary Spandrels.

About

Jagoe will use her historic abuse of laxatives to consider both the dynamic of personal participation in a global hydrocommons, and the use of plant-derived materials in contemporary Western medicine as a form of salvage accumulation. Looking at oedema (fluid retention) and dehydration associated with overuse of sennosides (derived from Cassia), the performance discusses my ways of attempting to parse my body of liquid as a refusal of watery embodiment that parallels both the impossible aim of closed systems of production, and a humanist, individualistic yearning for discreteness and isolation. The response to Verdon’s work forms part of a wider body of research into the opacity and unknowability of bodily systems, and the medicinal use of plants as a vector into the body.
