Pushing It: Becky Welter-Nolan

Pushing It is a performative project featuring a roughly 200 lb quilted soft-sculpture “boulder” pushed uphill in true Sisyphean style. The sculpture entitled Rocky III takes a cushiony, enticing and unwieldy form. Testing the body and space through physical exertion, tension, and force, the work critiques labour and the narrative of success, and navigates between endurance and futility.
