Presented as part of MAW '23 this edition of Pier 52 centres on a site specific installation, including a three channel film. The work was activated with two unique live performances, with soundscape, spoken word and movement. Shadow played a key aspect of this edition, with the witness encouraged to disrupt the projected films.
This ongoing body of work tracks the inhabitation, abandonment, reclaiming, re-inhabitation, destruction and reconstruction of Pier 52 on the Hudson River, NYC, through the lens of Gordon Matta-Clark’s monolithic work ‘Days End’. Site specific edition of Pier 52 presented in Epsilon Spires, Brattleboro, Vermont. Pier 52 is in collaboration with the Estate of Gordon Matta-Clark.
