C.E. Morgan on bearing witness

“I don’t believe love is real love if it remains cloistered within the confines of an intimate relationship; it should transcend the private sphere. As an artist that means training an eye on the suffering in the world, then acting on behalf of others. Bearing witness is one of the most excruciating aspects of working in a long form… Sitting with suffering—others’ and one’s own—is the challenge of a lifetime. But this is our practice.”
C.E. Morgan
