I Got Up 2020, Pandemic Edition

Description (in English): 

I Got Up 2020, Pandemic Edition started as an Instagram series inspired by On Kawara’s 1968-79 daily postcard ritual. 

This riff on artist On Kawara's 1968-1979 series "I Got Up" is a visible record of getting up while confined to the house and simultaneously enacting the roles of mother, artist, housekeeper, and teacher. While On Kawara sent daily postcards to friends, this project posts daily videos to Instagram through the course of isolating at home during the pandemic. These daily vignettes interpret “getting up” as unusually labor intensive—creative on the best days and merely possible on the worst. As a result of the quarantine, and the collapse of professional and domestic spaces, this series of getting up is a creative family adventure.
