A site responsive installation for the Madision Museum of Contemporary Art Museum atrium.
Madision Museum of Contemporary Art, 227 State St. Madison WI
Monthly Events held in the installation:
*Choreographer Maria Gillespie presents the movement installation, Tangible Space in response to the notions and materials of Sonja Thomsen’s installation in the space of elsewhere. Dancers inhabit and activate Thomsen’s work on multiple levels of the exhibit and call attention to the materiality of touch, the rootedness of presence, and the movement light. The dancers’ expansive, always vanishing gestures compose a kinesphere that is elusive and ephemeral, yet maintaining presence though the witnessing and reflected movements of other inhabitants in the space of elsewhere. Performers include Milwaukee-based artists Maria Gillespie and Joelle Worm. Platform sculptures are by Chicago-based artist Mike Rea.
