Pegi Christiansen’s grandson, born in 2013, lives in Los Angeles with her daughter--1756 miles by plane. Her mother lives in Phoenix--1460 miles by plane. Critical people in the development of her art--Theresa Columbus (Baltimore, Maryland), John Loscuito (Naples, Florida), and Jennifer Holmes (Whittier, California)--live 641, 1183, and 1756 miles away by plane.
As part of her yearlong residency, Christiansen invited Columbus, Loscuito and Holmes to collaborate with her on a performance and exhibition at Lynden. Each month, beginning in September 2014, the artists shot self-portraits at dawn and created visual and written exquisite corpses. In August, they came together at Lynden to develop a site-sensitive performance based on their far-flung collaboration. Inspired by the Surrealist embodiment of chance, Distance explores place, relationships, and memory.
