'Isolation' is a two-hour performance by Selloane Moeti, inspired by the health-preservation techniques people used during the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown. Moeti studied the mummification process to examine how people preserved themselves during the lockdown. She places herself inside a glass house while meditatively covering her body in bandages dipped in ibomvu (red clay), used in Zulu tradition for purification and spiritual healing.  The process leaves Moeti feeling restricted, fragile, and frightened, reflecting the current struggle to preserve health within tight spaces.
