You have to bring a T-shirt

'Make More Effort' • Elyce Semenec

Elyce Semenec will be performing the piece 'Make More Effort' during the Miami Art Fair Basel at Diaspora Vibe Gallery. The show is called Rituals,
'Make More Effort' ...is a silk-screening performance event exploring the ritual of making resolutions, whether daily, monthly or New Year's. In exchange for personal musings, ambitions and stories concerning these rituals, artist Elyce Semenec will silk-screen a personal resolution directly onto your T-shirt for future reference. The T-shirts are reminders of the fragility and resilience of humanity's ambitions while doubling as poetry in motion. The resolutions are intended to operate on multiple depths: personal, metaphorical, and literal.
You have to bring a T-shirt.

About Rituals
Rituals of various kinds are central to all cultures, past and present. From symbolic actions such as prayer, sacred ceremonies, and rites of passage to everyday gestures of greeting, walking, and eating, ritual exists in many forms. Repetition and the performative aspects of our daily lives will be explored in this exhibition that asks viewers to pay attention to the ways society and individuals create their own rituals, habits, and routines.
