solid objects, presentation, A: a residency by Victoria Haven & Heather Kravas begins today at Oxbow with an event on 10/20, open doors from 2-7 pm. The residency runs through 11/1. Stay tuned for more details.
solid objects, presentation A is a shared vision between visual artist Victoria Haven and choreographer Heather Kravas. Born from their long-standing friendship, Haven and Kravas come together to investigate something acutely personal while discovering ways to complete and complicate the action of another. By illuminating forces such as listening, presence and attention, solid objects, presentation A proposes a challenge to traditional distinctions between visual and performing art; questioning artistic tropes like the “vision” of the director, the commodity of visual objects, the dancer as “tool” and the neutrality of abstraction. Fundamentally feminist, this project will create new frames within existing ones, repositioning assumed relationships between objects, performances, audiences and people.
