Cassils’s one-time durational performance of Becoming An Image intersects performance, photography, and sculpture. During the performance Cassils unleashes an attack on a 2,000 pound clay block. Illuminated only by the flash of a photographer’s camera, the afterimages are burned into the viewer’s retina, speaking to concerns of unseen violence against gender non-conforming individuals. This performance is part of the artist's solo exhibition at the Bemis Center, opening February 2.

We have reached capacity for this performance. If you would like to be added to the waiting list in case of any cancellations, call the Bemis Center at 402.341.7130.

Becoming An Image was originally conceived as a site-specific work for the ONE Archives in Los Angeles, the oldest active LGBTQ archive in the United States.
