tether is a video installation that meditates on kelechi agwuncha's subconscious childhood memories of performance. it documents a new ritual that bridges their memories of playing the recess game, "tetherball" and witnessing traditional Ojiọnu Igbo masquerade figures gesture in a kind of spectacular, uncensored reality. each screening is live accompanied by video jockeying and musical scoring performances by Eva Marie Gonzalez Ruskiewicz and kelechi agwuncha.
