I approach performance and dance through the medium of sculpture. Using the painterly manipulation of physical materials and textures I make one by one from wood, paper, silk, ceramic, enamel, and gold leaf; interwoven with a labyrinth of delicate props, my work strives to create a path where movement and stillness meet. I make things with my hands out of many materials, assembling them into a performance. The handmade parts of the costume are my door into the spirit of performance. The costume, along with its set and props, takes nearly two years to develop. I often use the face or mask as a trigger to create my costumes. There are often many faces and people within my sculptures, like puppets. Everything is alive, appearing to be more intricate than lace, or more fragile than a thread of a spider’s silk in sunlight, whimsical as the ornaments in music boxes and fancy clocks. I have always enjoyed making things as it is calming and in close link with my own life, death, and all its stages. Performance, as it appears to me, is the singular discovery of things as they happen at that moment for the first time. Nothing is rehearsed. When this new hand made things are discovered on stage, it is as if the audience and myself for one moment actually feel like the same being- even momentarily fascinated, each person’s interpretation is much or slightly different from the other, as one of the many parts comprising the whole. The audience is like many strings of a tent, supporting and encapsulating the environment within the canvas billows. California artist Sha Sha Higby sculptures are complex and layered, informed by her experiences in Japan, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, and India. Yet more than mere visual delights, these sculptures are made to move and perform with her living body as the driving force. Meticulously crafted over the course of years, her sculptural costumes use paper, wood, leaves, silk, Asian lacquer, enamel, ceramics, and gold leaf to make creatures somewhere between the natural and the divine. Higby combines visual art with puppetry, and dance to present an ephemeral but the timeless experience, Sha Sha Higby received a BS in art from Skidmore College and spent five years in Indonesia under a Fulbright Scholarship. She also studied for more than a year in Japan, and six months in India under an Indo-American Fellowship. She has received numerous awards and grants, including a NEA Fellowship in solo theater, the Zellerbach Family Fund, the Japan Foundation for collaborative artistic work and Asian Lacquer She has performed and exhibited internationally at the Festival International delle Marionnnette; Divaldo Korzo in Slovakia; the Festival of Sydney in Australia; Singapore Festival of the Arts; Hong Kong Fringe Festival; Tokyo National College of Art; the Tokyo Textile Institute: Puppet Theater Festival; and the Stara Zagora in Bulgaria. She has exhibited her work at the Portland Art Museum; Arizona State University; San Francisco Folk and Craft Art Museum in San Francisco; Honolulu Academy of Arts; University of Massachusetts at Amherst; Columbia College Inter-Arts Program in New York; San Francisco Asian Art Museum; The Glass Museum in Tacoma, Washington; and Baltimore College of Art.
