A Simple Truth

2003 / LIVE Biennial of Performance Art Festival, Western Front, Vancouver, BC

A Simple Truth is a performance in which Belmore discusses her process of creating work through a narrative involving her connection to the suicide of a student with whom she worked with during a residency. During the performance, she lies down while being surrounded by glasses with candles lit inside that are carried out of the Western Front when the performance ends.
