The performer washes herself in a solar-powered shower during a rural artist residency in Upper Economy, Nova Scotia. The shower shares a small building with the farm’s radio station, and as the performer showers a woman’s folk cover of “I’m on Fire” and Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill” plays. The private ritual of singing in the shower is made visible in the context of a temporary community, an almost off-the-grid living situation for artists. The title “nymph” hints at the ambivalence of stereotyping women as nymphs— ecofeminist nature goddesses who are intrinsically more tied to nature— and nymphos— here, the feminist artist as sex-positive exhibitionist.
