Untitled (Hinkley) (2014/18)

The re-performance of a single sigh from the 2000 movie “Erin Brockovich,” filmed around the real-life town of Hinkley, California, and infused with imagery and audio from the film. The artist reads text from a 2012 Environmental Impact Report detailing the aftermath from the pollution depicted in the film, and efforts to contain the toxic groundwater plume since the film’s release. With thanks to Marissa Lee Benedict, Lindsey French, Elise Cowin, Christine Shallenberg, and the Center for Land Use Interpretation Desert Research Station. Premieres at CUNTemporary’s Eco Futures Festival as part of DEEP TRASH: Eco Trash on April 19th, 2019.
