For the show, Thread, in collaboration with Olive Barrel Berlin at Karibuni, Luttrell creates intimate vignettes in four separate spaces in the form of performance, installation and video. Each piece physically relates to how one protects themselves, specifically with the use of fabric. Objects that are meant to catch air from a fall are cut and frayed, leaving little capability to protect. A performer sits bare asking others to cut and pin fabric in order to collaboratively conceal her body. And a woman travels treacherous conditions, with physical evidence of her struggle found in the tears of the the garment she wears and the conditions she endures to protect a symbol of life. Each of these works questions how and why it is that we protect ourselves and how control becomes surrendered in these vulnerable situations.
