    This is a video documentation of Liuba's 'Unreal Exit' performance at the Grace Exhibition Space on Sunday March 6 for the SITE fest 2011. The piece is a ‘duet’ between live performance & video projection, where the same performance goes in a different way. Real & Unreal mix together through the theme of being imprisoned into boxes & the ‘virtual’ possibility to get out of them.

    • CHRYSALIS [Cry-Solace], Full Version

      from THE ONE((1))MAN EXPERIENCE / Added

      The, CHRYSALIS, installation, is a conceptual composite of the runaway slave escaping to freedom; the metamorphosis of caterpillar to butterfly and the persecuted and crucified Christ resurrected. The installation – which I refer to as the ‘Reveal’ for the first ONEMAN series, ’My-Story [mystery] of the Angry Black’ aka ‘The Sermon Series’ – represents a rite of passage. It’s the becoming and or birth, if you will, of the revolutionary – the emergence and evolution of the radical consciousness. This idea is expressed through a series of symbolic actions that mark the transformation of ‘ONEMAN’. The radical, whose anger and discontentment with society – and the systemically racist, exploitative and oppressive standards and practices of a, capitalism driven (white supremacy based) power structure – has subsequently lead him down the radical path towards liberation. The first step of this journey involved the act of speaking out, telling the truth (speaking truth to power). And while ‘The Sermon Series’ represents that first step or phase. CHRYSALIS [Cry-Solace] represents the coming of a new phase. Here, word is born – it is the manifestation of TRUTH as action – the cry of liberation gives rise to liberator. The word as invocation, or call, summons action as response. .

          Sandrine folded her body in half and repeated the action of transferring her body weight from her heels to toes. This minimal action is critical in the process of learning how to walk. Beneath her feet, Sandrine placed speakers inside of her shoes. They vibrated with sounds she collected during her travels in Mexico. As she raised her heels, the sound amplified for the audience to hear. This was a reward for the curious witnesses that neared her body to listen to the intricacies of the sounds. duration: 14 minutes created for "ASSUMING THE ECOSEXUAL POSITION" with Annie Sprinkle & Elizabeth Stephens Grace Exhibition Space, NYC 06.15.12
