Emily Colucci, who has written about Hunter Reynolds, and Gran Fury and ACT UP has organized a show with artist Michael Alan after a series of accidents and incidents has left him with severe nerve and spinal damage. The show explores the limits of the body, the way bodies inform work, and the ways in which artists use injury.
For this Living Installation, Alan will collaborate with fellow friends and artists, who are struggling with their own bodies in different ways – Garry Boake, Rose Lou, Keren Moscovitch, Allene La Spina, Leah Yerpe. Together they will form a powerful structure of body, finding inspiration in each other, building on each other’s strengths and supporting each other’s weaknesses to create a new work using paint, masks, music and a range of materials.
