Playing on an endless, seamless loop,Sebastian presents the viewer with a rough and magnetic cosmic cleaner who tirelessly performs a series of ritualistic actions inside a bucolic landscape. The effort and fluidity of this man’s movement evoke a hypnotic ritual cleansing, intimate through its tactile sounds. Sebastianexplores repetition, re-enactment, and impermanence while proposing that knowledge emerges through the repeated gestures of the body.

Sebastianis adapted from musician/composer Charles Quevillon’s live performance in Room with Sticks(created with choreographers Tedd Robinson and Ame Henderson).
