About the event
Ice Event with Itty Neuhaus and Guests
Sunday, February 18, 4pm
Join us for a series of performances within the exhibition Sublimation: An Iceberg's Story.
Through sound and movement, the senses will be engaged in all the qualities of ice, surrounded by Icylla’s Story. Serving as the backdrop of this dynamic event, Neuhaus’ installation consists of a panoramic drawing, small iceberg replica, and a video fable telling the future-shock story of a glacier that is coming undone from the perspective of the last surviving iceberg. The video uses time-lapse footage shot on location in Iceland and Greenland, combined with stop motion animation shot in an upstate NY frog-pond.
Ice as a percussion instrument: Tim Spelios, artist and musician, currently showing at Studio 10 in Watermelon Punch.
Old Ice: projection of micro melting ice: photographed as part of the Arctic Circle residency by Carleen Sheehan, artist and educator, Fordham University.
