The Diver is a collaboration with the spectacular dance company La BaZooKa, with founders Sarah Crépin and Etienne Cuppens. We developed a performance where Sarah embodied the diver as dancer, and worked with ideas of submersion and expansion. I created a live digital progressive painting, projected on to the exterior wall of the museum. Sound artist Etienne Cuppens created a progressive audio montage for the production. The work was performed for the public, in companion with the paintings from the series The Inhabitants, temporarily installed at the André Malraux Museum of Modern Art in December of 2012.
This work was created during the fall/winter of 2012 while an artist in residence in the city of Le Havre, France and laureate of the Regards Croisés//Criss Cross: NY//Le Havre residency and production grant, with support of the French Institute, the City of Le Havre, and Triangle Arts Association in New York.
