Pushing It
Becky Welter-Nolan

Pushing It is a performative project by Becky Welter-Nolan featuring a roughly 200lb quilted soft-sculpture “boulder” entitled Rocky III, pushed uphill in true Sisyphean style. Testing the body and space through physical exertion, tension, and force, the work critiques labour and the narrative of success, navigating between endurance and
futility.
