Matéa LeBeau: Keepsake
Keepsake is an immersive show that asks its audience to consider permanence and impermanence through the mechanism of the tattoo. In a time of such great instability, erasure, and uncertainty, the creation of a tattoo can bring about tender, vulnerable, and decisive moments of exchange between people. The pieces in this show are an exploration of embracing the present, both alone and with others, through the slow devotional process of the hand-poked tattoo.
Though the world feels doomed
We can make a keepsake with
Me, tattoo, and you.
