Solo Performance at The Museum of Modern Art, New York


In 2014 I performed a new solo video and sound work at MoMA New York, as of the Lançamento Plataforma for the Lygia Clark Exhibition. The piece, entitled Mãos (hands), consists of a video of two hands clapping, slowed to 30 minutes, accompanied by a live performance of the same duration created from the audio the same single clap.

The performance was in part a nod to the the artist Lygia Clark's work with the body and spontaneity, as well as to the long history of clapping musics (from styles such as Gnawa, Samba and Hip-Hop to composers such as Reich),

At the performer's discretion, each section of the piece is triggered by a large clap, moving the piece through different movements. The piece is framed by a structure with improvised sections, its timing, rhythm, image and reshaping, is different each time.

The video, a clap slowed to 30 minutes, interpolates its frames, attempting to match one to the next. The result creates slow visual artifacts, where the hands blend as they attempt to find one another.

The performance occurred as part of the Latitude spring arts events at MoMA and included both Mãos as well as an evening of original recorded compositions performed as a DJ.
