Monument

Monument
(2010)

Conceived and Performed byWhitney V. Hunter
Digital Media Technologist: Sita Frederick

Monument weaves together techniques of action painting, video projection, and a controlled movement score. The work confronts sacrifice and injustice through the execution of lucid, performative actions. The construction of the monument is actualized through the ritualized execution of a continuous, contemplative promenade around the space with the intention of suspending time in order that the viewer will question, “for whom do we erect monuments?”

Premiere Location: BAAD! (The Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance)
