Karen Bernard Projects presents "Poolside"
Karen Bernard Projects
Wearing a vintage style bathing suit and sunglasses, ground breaking multi-disciplinaryartist Karen Bernard creates a heightened performance from mundane activities and images as she grapples with memory, loss, acceptance, and mortality. Within a durational and evolving video installation, Bernard will perform an exhilarating performance not unlike a doll in a jewelry box, bending and shifting with nuanced attractive and unattractive posturing. Developed at Foundation Obras at Evoramonte, Portugal, Poolside uses found architecture and unexpected projection angles, playing with the tension of seeing and being seen. Set to an emotional pop score, Bernard evokes nostalgia and exuberance, transporting us into the lazy days of summer in the middle of winter.

Wednesday: 12-5pm, 6-9pm with a performance from 7-7:30pm
Thursday: 12-5pm, 6-9pm with a performance from 7-7:30pm
