LIVE PERFORMANCE and Exhibition Opening
Katya Grokhovsky, Touch It
56 Bogart St, Brooklyn, New York 11206
The evolving installation Pleasure Principle, by Katya Grokhovsky, currently on view in +/- Project Space will culminate in an interactive public performance, in which the audience is given permission to touch, hold and caress the objects from the installation, transcending boundaries between the art and the observer. Through the act of permission, Grokhovsky will share the maker's privilege of accessing the work physically, as well as the experience of pleasure in making it, juxtaposing the visual pleasure of viewing versus physical experience of performative actions. Live Performance Response: Christen Clifford
