KATHY ROSE: LIVING TAPESTRIES
19-23 SEPT, QUARTIERS POP
Looping daily, 11am-10pm
“There is something eternal in Rose’s creations. Imagine Jung crossed with Jean Cocteau. “
– Joanna Ney, Curator, Walter Reade Theater/Lincoln Center
Kathy Rose’s work has evolved from her early drawn animated films, and her unique, pioneering performances combining dance with film in the 1980-90s, to her current surreal interdisciplinary performance spectacles and videos, with influence from symbolist art and the Japanese Noh theatre. Her installation work consists of haunting “video puppets” and “puppet paintings” in which she combines sculptural figures, veils, and video projections. The pieces are inspired by Japanese screens in their use of projections moving across multiple veils, becoming dimensionally magical; exquisite mini spectacles of illusion.
