Slow dancing with two fans, action, 2014, Looking Back: The Eighth White Columns Annual - Selected by Pati Hertling at White Columns, NYC

Slow dancing with two fans is a small excerpt from the three-day action I am not quite sure. This is an arduous terrain, which was part of the group show Descartes’ Daughter at the Swiss Institute Contemporary Art, New York City. September 20 - November 3, 2013. Curated by Piper Marshall.

The artist invited gallery goers to slow dance with her during the opening of the exhibition at White Columns, and then at other unannounced times during the run of the show. Two industrial fans were set up at the entrance of the gallery where the dancing took place and the action became the filter through which people entered the space.
