The Practice of Gratitude: Bethany Deboer Performance Saturday February 29, 12-4pm Reception and viewing Sunday March 1, 2-4pm
The Practice of Gratitude is a performance piece that explores the profound and cathartic act of giving thanks. The Practice of Gratitude is an extension of my personal definition of Gratitude. I express this concept through the physical and arduous act of covering the walls of the gallery space with written sentiments of gratitude. Floor to ceiling, and corner to corner, this piece is intended to; raise awareness surrounding the often laborious act of giving thanks in a world inundated by excess and; implore those who experience this piece to find solace and inspiration whilst contemplating their own definition of Gratitude.
