Dorothy Hoover @ ONE for INSTALL:WeHo
September 12, 2012
ONE Archives is very excited to sponsor the upcoming queer arts festival INSTALL:WeHo, occurring across from the ONE Archives Gallery & Museum this Sunday, September 16th from 12-5pm. As part of the event, artist Dorothy Hoover will present the performance a Still—Volcano—Life at the ONE Gallery throughout the day. For INSTALL Hoover is specifically adapting her site-specific performance to the space at ONE.
Speaking about her work:
Just like the old days. Just like the old days. Just like the old days.
Pulling from a variety of sources, namely Anne Carson’s novel-in-verse Autobiography in Red, a Still—Volcano—Life is a reverie on the mystery of one’s power over another.
The performers, Joseph Thomas, Murphy Martin and Mathew Bazulka will tell the same story over and over again, using objects installed in the gallery to dictate and change their movements throughout the day.
a Still—Volcano—Life will be presented at 12:30pm, 2pm and 3:45pm at the ONE Gallery. We hope to see you there!
