In the performance, the bed and its bedside table symbolize a final recollection, a last testimony from a daughter to her ailing mother. Jimena, the character in the story, is a 40-year-old Deaf woman who angrily shares her frustrations about her distant relationship with her mother. She tells us the divide between two worlds: that of the hearing and that of the Deaf.

Artist Cindy Baker will conduct a 3-hour performance, interacting with the CRASH PAD installation displayed in the exhibition. The artist’s work resides at the intersection of Queer, Gender, Race, Disability and Fat Studies, exploring body-mind resources, fatigability, and stamina in performance. The first hour of the performance will be audio described in French.
