Rippling the River, a performance by Ivan Forde
@ Baxter St at the Camera Club of New York
Exhibition: Dense Lightness, curated by Anna Harsanyi Nov 8 – Jan 5
Baxter St is pleased to present a performance by artist Ivan Forde, commemorating his first solo exhibition Dense Lightness, at Baxter St on Thursday, November 29 at 7pm. Taking place within the exhibition of large-scale cyanotype works, viewers will be incorporated into Forde’s creative practice by experiencing a mix of natural sounds, vocals, soul music and live improvisation on keyboard. Forde’s techno poetic sound score illuminates on the recently uncovered chapter from the Gilgamesh epic, which centers on the characters Enkidu and Humbaba in the cacophonous Cedar Forrest.
Dense Lightness, on view through January 5, 2019, brings together multimedia works from Forde’s interdisciplinary experimentations with cyanotype, drawn from his long-term work and research around the ancient Mesopotamian epic poem Gilgamesh/He Who Saw The Deep.Buy tickets/get more info now
