Performance Art by Emily Francisco at The Fridge!
7:00pm - 8:00pm
Join the gallery for an evening of performance art by Emily Francisco. Her work confronts limitation and loss in reaction to the confines of the environment. While not destructive for its own sake, Francisco’s work pushes objects to the limits of their ability to withstand force in order to understand their subsequent transformation.
From the facebook invite: "Emily Francisco constructs situations that manifest in response to personal and physical understandings of limitation and loss. Her work is not destructive, though it involves deconstruction. She pushes the limits of how much an object can withstand, while exploring how things can transform. The night will open with a classical cello performance featuring David Ross utilizing a bow that not only plays the instrument, but also sources a live radio feed. It will conclude with a performance with Emily playing a toy piano constructed in an enclosed space that will slowly flood. Emily’s work is on view alongside pieces from Jenny Sawle and Ashleigh Werner for our April exhibit Pia Mater."
