Viscera/Epiphora Closing Reception
55379 Twentynine Palms Highway
55379 Twentynine Palms Highway, Yucca Valley, CA 92284, USA
Join us Saturday, March 19th, at 6pm in the backyard of Compound YV for an evening of sound and movement inspired by our current exhibition, Viscera/Epiphora, a group show on the body.
By manipulating the text from Clarice Lispector’s book, “Agua Viva," visual artist Audra Wolowiec leaves only the letter ‘o’ as a pattern for her silk panels and as a score for sound. Joined by singers Stephanie Aston and Mindy Ella Chu, composer Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs will translate these aqueous oo o o’s into music, fulfilling Audra’s “desire for an embodied experience, an exchange, an intimate proximity, how voice communicates in the absence of language,” as she recently shared in BOMB Magazine.
Contemporary dancer Jobel Medina will perform solo material from Lara Wilson’s How to Draw an Outline, the story of a life from before birth to after death. Inside the gallery, Wilson’s dance film installation, Scrape, another part of this work, envisions a long recovery after a disaster. She created it in 2019 while in residence at the Muckenthaler Cultural Center.
Cocktails will be provided by Current Cassis and Joshua Tree Distilling Company.
