BALANCE

A Performing Installation

HCG Gallery 1130 Dragon Street, Suite 190
Dallas, TX 75207
   

Suspended from the structure and in response to the space,                      
                       an inclined plane becomes our “floating world.”

   
   

The nature of the object leads to investigations of Tibetan Thangka painting and The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter, the oldest surviving Japanese work of fiction, and haunting images of its heroine, Kuguya-hime’s “Return to the Moon.” Steel, metal fabric, mechanisms…

 
 


THE COMFORT OF GRAVITY

Field and objects are set in motion from the rhythms of the moon and gravitational Pulls: Spring tides/Neap Tides, bellows/breathing, male/female. A “physical response” to the physics of the space, here maintaining equilibrium in a place where polarities exist. Sticks, strings, beads, bottles…

All of this process arrives at the Vernal Equinox on March 20, 2010, the date of the opening performance. Midway between the solstices, light and dark balance one another. It is, therefore, an opportunity to reflect upon BALANCE in life.
