In this newly commissioned work, the artist ventriloquises a miniature sculpture of their own head named Blue Dog that looks like a baby, an elder and an alien. In this performance, as in the sociopolitical landscape post-2020, nothing makes sense. Performance is the end of sense and the start of sensing: Blue Dog communicates the separation anxiety of being an animal body inside an institution.
