I have been studying Sockeye Salmon and their pre-ordained life cycle. If a Sockeye Salmon were an individual with the power to refuse burying their eggs at the top of their natal stream, what would burst out of this temporal crack in nature's rhythms?
Lady Sockeye is an alter ego with whom I will continue to explore transgressions in ritual. Through these glitches in normality and 'flow', I hope to witness internalised power structures, inherited narratives of coping and the oppressed intuition in a new light.
Over lockdown I constructed a Salmon costume and live streamed myself exploring domestic spaces as Lady Sockeye, eventually burying eggs made of red jelly in my partner’s bed.
