The Neighborhood Dances
an Installation by Victoria Eleanor Bradford
From The People Who Brought You The Art Associates Gallery...
Opening April 6th and running through the 24th is the latest work in video and installation by performance artist and Lake Charles native Victoria Eleanor Bradford.
The solo exhibition, entitled Neighborhood Dances, is the result of 9 months of site and studio-based practice.
From Conventional Dance Studio, To Your Lawn...
After taking to front lawns, houses and buildings in neighborhoods across Lake Charles and beyond, Bradford has captured 168 fifteen second videos which serve as raw material for the work that fills this exhibit.
On April 6th, the World of 15 Second Dancing Will Change Forever...
The Art Associates Gallery will be installed with two walls of video projection, one composed of every neighborhood dance, layered into one elusive, ghostly image, functioning like a kinetic painting; the other a more concrete vision of each dance, one moving image scrolling across the screen followed by another. Other work on display in the gallery will function like an archive, catalogued and numbered, of this collection of dances: still images from each dance cross referencing written scores or textual translations of each dance, corresponding with a conceptual map identifying the neighborhood of the dance.
One Woman Dared To Push the Limits...
Bradford will also deliver two live performances in relation to the work on the evening of her closing reception at the Spring Art Walk, 6pm and 7pm on April 24.
