Excerpt from a 40-hour performance.
Created for Performa 2011,The New Visual Art Performance Biennial, NYC
Hosted by Scaramouche.
"Unfolding for forty hours over five days, three actors improvise a sexually-charged, silent psychodrama; shifting relationships are articulated with glances, gestures, and movement. Framed by wooden partitions and paint-dripping geometric sculptures that stain the space over time, With One Hand Between Us disorients the gender and sexual conventions of both New York School painting and Minimalism, and playfully references a wide range of cinema, from Fassbinder to the Japanese New Wave." -- David Everitt Howe, Curator
The piece was fully visible from the sidewalk ; viewers were welcome to enter the work at any time and stay as long as they wished.
Performed by David Rafael Botana, Laryssa Husiak, and Anthony Wills, Jr.
