Mauve Bird with Yellow Teeth Red Feathers Green Feet and a Rose Belly: Part YELLOW is a multidisciplinary performance in which vast colors, inflatables, sound, and dance combine to create an immersive psychological landscape commenting on desire. It could be viewed as a “handheld history”, a collection of personal accounts, about transformation within a culture. Ettun investigates the concepts of movement and stillness in relation to the ephemeral, and confronts our machine-like psychological defenses with accumulated gestures building empathy with the other. An artist Q&A will follow the park performance from 6:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Mauve Bird is a body of work presented by Ettun and her performance group The Moving Company, as a tetralogy, premiering a new installment each year until the completion of the project in 2018. Each part is based on a color—blue, red, yellow, and orange—and an emotion relating to the other. In addition to performances, the work consists of videos, photographs and sculptural objects. Following its premiere in Bryant Park, Part YELLOW will be the subject of Ettun's one-person exhibition at Uppsala Art Museum in Sweden.
Tamar Ettun lives and works in Brooklyn, NY and is represented by Fridman Gallery, New York, New York.
