Monika Weiss - Elytron: (spirit and body are only two wings)
Elytron can be defined as the leathery or chitinous forewings of a beetle or a related insect, serving to encase the thin, membranous hind wings used in flight.
“‘Elytron: (spirit and body are only two wings)’ is a 5-hour installation/performance created for the main room of the Chelsea Art Museum. Moving progressively and intuitively around the floor, and using my entire figure as a metaphorical brush, I repeatedly leave and arrive back to a sculpted vessel filled with dark fluid. Observed by a system of video cameras, I crawl leaving visual and sonic traces of the action and creating a permeable, open zone of image and of sound, while I move, curled up, within the self-imposed boundaries of canvas.”
