  • watch: 28th June 2020 at 5pm UTC
  • duration: 120 min

Erin and Cynthia will present a diptych of images that consider duality / the absolute / the indefinite. Their image-making seen in process, positions neutral / coincidental / contradictory / improvised / interdependent movements while occupying individual frames. They will explore the inherent qualities of sameness and opposition that a pair presents in this context.

BIO: Erin Peisert’s works consider the fragility of the corporeal body as connected to an individual\’s will to live. Processes of material transformation, degeneration, endurance, fatigue, repetition, site specificity, and interpersonal relationship are integral to her interdisciplinary practice. Erin is an MFA candidate in Art Practice at School of Visual Arts, NYC with a BA in theater from Columbia College Chicago. Cynthia Post Hunt Cynthia Post Hunt is a curator and artist based in Northwest Arkansas. Post Hunt is the programmer of dance and theater at the Momentary and the co-founder of INVERSE performance art festival. She holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work investigates the individual within the context of society through performative action. She chooses isolated movements, in simplified and repetitive patterns, to activate multiple methods of perception, in real time. The relationship between performer and audience blurs as Post Hunt asks the viewer to explore the boundaries of their own vulnerabilities through engagement with these movements. She relies on the presumption that as humans, we have common shared experiences. In fixating on these moments of shared reality, Post Hunt explores the effects of being human. http://www.cynthiaposthunt.com and @riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin
