Jonah Bokaer and Daniel Arsham, and performers: “RECESS”
Introduced by Thomas Bartscherer and Maika Pollack
Part of the ROSTRUM series, hosted by The Language and Thinking Program at Bard College languageandthinking.bard.edu
RECESS is a collaboration between visual artist Daniel Arsham and choreographer and media artist Jonah Bokaer. They performed in the Multi-Purpose Room of Bertelsman Campus Center on the Bard campus on August 13, 2010.
RECESS is a site-specific work that challenges architectural space through the in situ implementation of choreography, objects, to challenge perceptual assumptions between these forces.
In their work together, the artists create a score around the following words:
Rational form versus natural form
Rules / Broken Rules
