Encounters With Geese
The following survey is being used as research material for artist, Sandrine Schaefer's current project, "gaggle." "gaggle" is a developing series of durational performance artworks sited in public parks throughout Greater Boston where large populations of humans and geese gather. Actions that make up these performances are sourced from goose gathering behaviors observed in these locations and human activist strategies of assembly. Through this work, Sandrine intends to draw attention to everyday collisions between human and non-human life in places designated for human recreation to offer new narratives and proposals for assembly and cohabitation.
