Nowhere to Go is a documentation of a performance created in Newfoundland, Canada, next to the cold Atlantic Ocean. I stood in a sculpture base replicating coral, wearing only a dress, as an attempt to understand the feeling of being stuck and vulnerable without protection in an unforgiving environment. The video and photographs document the changes in my physical state during that time. With the temperature at minus ten, I lasted only twenty-three minutes before I reached my threshold and had to stop.
