Mirror Eupepsia

Mirror Eupepsia is a curatorial installation by artists Annie Woodfill and Monica Dixon featuring the work of Julian Chams, Harper Hair, and Sepideh Majidi. The featured artists, working in diverse mediums, partake in processes of transformation that extract, regenerate and breakdown materials and information. Eupepsia, a Greek word meaning “good digestion,” refers to a shared attention from the artists to metabolisms of interaction and memory, synergistic components of experience, and cathartic absolve. This site-specific installation playfully finds connections between the artifacts of these practices and their proximities. Moving in and out of the present and the virtual, Mirror Eupepsia looks at whether our inner worlds are ever muted when we understand what is outside of ourselves.   #mirroreupepsia Featured Artists: Julian Chams (NY) Harper Hair (LA) Sepideh Majidi (CA) Read the Press Release here. Additional Sensory Manipulation Reception Look out for public programming on Thursday, November 8th, from 5 to 8pm at la Esquina Gallery! The program will host an evening of dawdling in the exhibition accompanied by odd DIY satisfaction. More details will be announced soon.

Found Installations

Performance

Found Installations is a video art collection of Leralee Whittle's time-based processes in rural and city spaces transformed through her collaboration with the spaces. Whittle will occupy public and private domaines such as parks, gyms, natural habitats or unique buildings. The visually rich spaces typically serve communities for non-arts related activities, yet inspire Leralee to engage in body-based practices anywhere from hours to months (intermittently). The artist illuminate's the choreographic design of each generative process with postproduction editing to clearly define aesthetics of social practice, dance or visual art.

Leralee Whittle will enact a hour durational performance in which she occupies Broadway and “embody the space.” Whittle will occupy the stage amidst installed videos to investigate materiality in dance, minimalist body-based installation performance and new dance emerging through choreographic structures and interaction with video, things and people in the space. Leralee will be collaborating with Paul Sprawl, who will be performing as a guest composer/musician for the evening.

The performance will take place on Friday night of November 9, 2018 at Charlotte Street Foundation's new performance arts venue, Capsule (1664 Broadway Blvd, KCMO). Ticket information will be available soon.

Workshop Opportunity

The following day on Saturday, November 10, 2018, Leralee Whittle will lead a workshop for interested attendees. The workshop will be free and open to the public.
Part 1:  We're Space Makers / J(())Y Embodiment  11-12:30
Part 2:  Instant Composition, a relational art ritual - 12:35- 2:00
In this workshop we'll explore a cross-disciplinary approach of inviting your/our authentic dance in the creation of embodied installations (being and designing with the body and things) and
creative collaboration. We'll explore how materiality between the body, space, time, object and other unfolds a time-based process that opens up aesthetic communing/community. We'll step into composition as a ritual mode that heightens ours senses and gives us the experience of phenomena as the engine of collaboration (relational aesthetics) each moment.
