FREE SPIRIT is a series of performance rituals that explore secrets from Hardy’s past regarding religion, sexuality, and self-identity. Hardy uncovers and examines his past (represented by the jars/secrets) as an act of liberation––letting go of personal burdens and societal restrictions. These secrets haunt and shape the person the artist is and has yet to become.
