Beasts and Plots
Beasts and Plots investigates what happens when Welliver’s figurative and nonfigurative worlds collide. Inspired by Matt Mullican’s Glen, Oskar Schlemmer’s seminars on linear figures, Rebecca Horn’s performance films and Paul Klee’s portrait works,Beasts and Plots is a semi-narrative work that explores the outline of a woman’s body, a death and the idea of a unicorn.
Welliver is in residence at MAD museum and will hold a series of work-in-progres open rehearsals, madmuseum.org/events/gwen-wellivers-beasts-and-plots for more information.
