Bodies in Motion An Afternoon of Dance and Performance Art
Performance: Saturday, December 17th, 1-3pm, Hupfield performs “4 Lines in 4 Directions” event includes “Founders” performance by Jonathan Allen followed by a healing action and discussion held within the gallery space by the artist Macon Reed.
For This event I will perform 4 Lines in 4 Directions to further activate items currently on exhibition in conjunction with the BRIC Biennial: Volume II exhibition. The work 4 Lines in 4 Directions includes a 15-20min performance in which I will focus on being in good relations to place. Centered around the number 4 this work will move through a combination of scored and unscored representational and abstract movement, visualities and verbalizations that reference systems of structure and contemporary living. I ground my work in everyday materials and experiences; during my live performances items displayed in the gallery acquire new meaning. 4 Lines in 4 Directions is comprised of 4 wood planks and the following custom made components by myself in industrial felt: a hand-cut circular floral motif, silhouette of me crouching holding a crown, and pair of moccasins.
