TROPIC OF GEMINI
by Kirstin Mitchell
Presented by Dashboard
Viewers will observe artist Kirstin Mitchell performing along this imaginary straight line for Momentum Exercises: Tropic of Gemini. Mitchell will be walking downslope and away from paradise for several hours.
There is an intermediate movement in which we spend most our lives. We are midair, mid-step, mid-destination. While walking towards an unknown, we catch undefined glimpses of ourselves. This is the second exercise on momentum. The first exercise engaged the upper body and deliberate force through archery.
The first performance for Momentum Exercises, “One Shot” (2015), was presented by Dash Initial at Antenna Gallery, New Orleans.
