Curator's Statement

Pica debuts a timely performance that confronts scarcity with resilient hope. One person with one small bag of confetti throws one piece at a time, watching it land before throwing the next. Once all falls, each piece is picked off the floor to start again. She explains: “It’s about treating joy as something too precious to spend all at once.”
