BLOOD* BY WHITNEY VANGRIN
121 ESSEX ST. 2ND FL. (BETWEEN RIVINGTON & DELANCEY)
ST. VALENTINE’S FEAST: 7-8pm
AFTER PARTY ALL NIGHT W/ SPECIAL GUESTS
*The final installment of Vangrin’s performance trilogy, BLOOD SWEAT TEARS!!! This series has been a physical meditation on the rituals, reality, and most significantly materiality of bleeding, sweating, and crying. Her work hinges on questions of affect, material, and the body’s relationship to place and dimensionality (in both cyber and known worlds). Through the execution of intense regimentation and self-imposed physical challenges, her performances offer a strange combination of anxiety and spirituality.
For BLOOD, Vangrin will utilize a mixture of present performance and live-streaming, while toying with our bodily (and often, banal) experiences of living in New York’s cinematic monumentality.
