<Studies in Resting< (dry and broken) is a 2022 performance by Elana Katz in which she rests for one hour under continuous water mist, with a broken knee (an injury from events unrelated to the performance). This performance refers to both denial and honesty, in equally unsatisfying ways.
Within the exhibition “Elvirasteig” organized by Gallery KWADRAT, Berlin, hosted by Lea Mugnaini, co-curated by Martin Kwade and Mareike Hadler, and initiated by Daniel Mohr.
