Tessa Kennedy

I am constantly re-discovering and reflecting upon the patterns and rhythms, which open a window into human desires and actions. The sounds of sorrow and ecstasy echo in my ears; the smells of perfume and decay play about my nostrils; bodies flit and fret before my eyes. I sense a deep-seated calm, heavy with fatigue and stasis; then the spirit reanimates with a roar of energy, and the old divisions and bifurcations return.
I approach my concept, my subject, my material in layers, offering an appealing surface, which barely obscures a core of often poignant truths. Oscillating between attraction and repulsion, between Orient and Occident, I ask the viewer to confront the personal, communal, and universal experiences of loss-gain, endurance, and healing-growing.
My performances draw upon
