A Performance Installation by
LEIMAY: Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya
June 10-16, 2011
The LAB Gallery
, 501 Lexington Avenue, New York City, USA
The LAB Gallery presents: Uncovering (in rehearsal)
The LAB Gallery presents: Uncovering: Part One
For the first week, June 10-16, LEIMAY collaborates with Tijuana born, New York based draftsman and artist Hugo Crosthwaite and an international group of New York based performers and Butoh dancers. This part will be a durational dance- drawing-installation from 4-8pm each night, reflecting on how society's hierarchical views of success are dominated by fear of failure.
Through a series of daily performances, the residue of sweat and movement produced by the performers will gradually expose a large scale mural-engraving hidden behind white cloth sheeting. The performance will challenge the viewer to explore the confrontation between our collective values and individual self discovery, bringing to the forefront the ephemeral nature of life.
Performed by Yamasaki Ami, Taj Black, Ximena Garnica, May-Lee Hollis, Theresa Magario, Liz McAuliffe, Denisa Musilova, Hiram Pines, Rachael Richman, Julie Spodek and Alex Vizzi.
