Elizabeth Czartoryski: The Perch / performance installation and photoworks.
Performance schedule: Thur 7 Sep, 7pm & 8pm // Tues 12 Sep, 7pm. // Thur 14 Sep, 7pm. // Sat 16 Sep, 7pm.
The Perch is the second installment of a larger body of work orbiting around the idea of a gender truce. The exhibition includes time-based performances, a sculptural wall and photoworks that enlarge the aperture of gender difference.
Gender equity continues to be mistreated and misguided. In order to broaden the spectrum of our gender roles, and invent new ones, we must first surrender to existing prescriptions of social convention. These prescriptive ingredients disrupt our bodies from fully engaging in the creation of a gender-neutral equilibrium.
Within the rituals of our everyday lives, we are left with residual anxiety that consumes our desire to embrace each other as equals and re-imagine ourselves. We must strip to our flesh, express our vulnerability, and remind each other that we are all the same. [...].
