Purge
2010
Site-specific performance
Church of the Good Shepherd, Augusta, Georgia

This private performance was intended as a cathartic ritual in which the artist symbolically purged her grief. The artist, dressed in black, walked a labyrinth while pushing a wheeled bucket. Water constantly leaking from the handlebars into the bucket suggested tears. The artist abandoned the "weeping" bucket in the center of the labyrinth and retraced her steps to the labyrinth's entrance alone.
