Performed by and Created in Collaboration with: Alison Denham, Billy Marchenski, Kate Franklin, Erika Mitsuhashi, Elissa Hanson, Ileanna Cheladyn
Second Floor Galleries, Vancouver Special: Ambivalent Pleasures – Vancouver Art Gallery
A decentralized choreography performed throughout the second floor galleries in the exhibition Vancouver Special: Ambivalent Pleasure at the Vancouver Art Gallery. The choreography has been made in response to observing visitor’s body movement inside the exhibition, as well as the figures found in the artworks in the exhibition and the artists’ body movements in their video interviews. The movement process of the performers is borrowed from the actions and principles of faceting gemstones.
