A video collage of a seven-year performance piece by performance artist, Linda Montano that chronicles the issues and events that arose in Montano’s life while she devoted a year to each of the seven chakras. Beginning as a piece devoted to themes of commitment and limitation, the work becomes a fascinating hybrid of art and life, as Montano experiences the onset of menopause, her mother’s death , her choice to enter and then leave a convent, the suffering of a stroke, and thoughts of her own death—all within the structural confines of an intense work of art. Contributors to the work include Ellen Fullman, Gisela Gamper, and Annie Sprinkle.
