Inspired by Borges short story, this an attempt to authentically recreate Trisha Brown’s 1978 piece ‘Watermotor’. Through deliberate movement the body becomes a portal as it finds and eventually enters the space Trisha Brown entered when she created her seminal work. The ideal goal of this process would be to replicate the exact choreography through channeling movement from the ether. However, the artist will take what she can get.
OCEAN DRONE is a process based work that is the most current embodiment of her research.
the process of being
is revealed by showing the self
to the self
and to others
JIL appreciates your participation as witness.
JIL STEIN’s work stems from an interest in how one personally connects to a body that is engaged in a moved experience. The interconnection between the space and body are always fundamental to her investigations. This has led her to understand art as an expression that is from the body and not particular to art as form.
