Sha Sha Higby - Emeralds on Ice

Presented by San Francisco International Art Festival at Southside Theater, Fort Mason

May 25 2019
Sha Sha Higby - Emeralds on Ice

Bolinas performance artist Sha Sha Higby presents her new show at Fort Mason

Sha Sha Higby sculptures are influenced by experiences in Asia and beyond. The sculptures are made to move with her living body as the driving force.

Meticulously crafted over course of years, the multi-layered costumes are made of paper, wood, glass, enamel, Asian lacquer, and gold leaf.

“…Like the god of beginnings, gates, transitions, time, duality, doorways, passages, and endings and looking into the future and to the past.”

“…like a chrysalis out of a feathered womb.”

“…positively Edenic, mythological–like a rain forest priestess… a performance… hypnotic, primitive (in an ethnographic sense), and…transformative, reminding those assembled of the distant origins we all share.”
