wire drawings shifting through motion, static sculptures made momentary, processual. Space deconstructed and reassembled. Fifteen filigree wire sculptures lie strewn across a stage. A dancer enters the stage, approaching the sculptures.
Through performative interaction with the objects, the dancer removes the sculptures from their original context and brings them together in a complex new form. The dancer resembles the drawer in the immediacy of his decisions and in his search for a new scale of measurement. Reality is fragmented and filtered, then redefined and reassembled anew.
