Intra Muros I, a performance installation by Martine Viale
Through self-displacement, successive actions and minimal materials, Intra Muros I proposes a sense of contemplation, as the artist gradually tries to accumulate meanings through a constant folding and unfolding of images. Pursuing a process based on persistence, Viale’s work suggests multiple stages of working, rather then presenting a completed product. Transformation through time and accumulation plays a major role in the elaboration of the work. The artist’s body becomes a “doing body” engaged in creating, layering and collecting traces of actions, which progressively transform the space and the artist herself.
Performance installation in progress: February 2 & 3, from 2:00pm–7:00pm
Closing performance action: February 3 @ 8:00pm
Artist talk: February 4 @ 1:00pm
