Beside the Amber Light

Microscope Gallery

November 4, 2019 /8:00pm

Exploring the trope of gathering around a fire to tell secrets and stories, the selected works look at ideas of intimacy, mythos, and self reflection. The fireplace symbolizes comfort, warmth, and domestic life while also caging a mesmerizing, dangerous substance.

The focus on sound and performance harkens to oral tradition, where ideas and cultural material were passed only by direct presence of the body and voice. Continuing through history and into the present this has remained a powerful and radical method of expression and disseminating information.

December 17 2017 / 7:00pm

The faux velour inflatable couch with inset cup holders makes so many decisions for the body. What is left for movement to discover. It is difficult to find another body in time anew, ungoverned by projection and structural violence.

Featuring Erin Morris and Tyler Berrier.

Site Gallery at the Silos on Sawyer

October - December 2017

Adapting the vocabulary and materials of industry to dance, we employ the work of choreography through both machine and body to investigate the intimate and mechanical capabilities of both anatomies. This site specific installation was accompanied by a two night performance (October 20th and 21st, 2017) as part of the reception for Sculpture Month Houston’s “Tensile Strength” exhibition (October 20-December 2, 2017) at Site Gallery in the Silos on Sawyer.
