Rest Area

Sarah-Jane Norman

Now that I’ve found you, this is all I want from you. I’ve come a long way, baby, for this one thing. I want you, I want you to come in, I want you to lie down, I want you to hold me, just for a minute, just for you and just for me, just long enough to feel your breath on the back of my neck. The stars are out and the keys are in the ignition.

Rest Area is a performance installation, an experiment in intimacy, an invocation of a familiar desire, a repetition of a familiar gesture. It is an invitation (should you choose to accept it), a tribute to the solitary female figure in the landscape, and to the melancholy eroticism of loneliness.
