U-Street Sidewalk Serves as a Stage for Interactive Performance Art
Washington, DC – February 8, 2011 – The Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery announces the final performance of John M. Adam’s Efflux, on Tuesday, February 15, beginning at 6pm on the gallery sidewalk.
Since mid January the gallery has hosted
John M. Adams’ site-specific drawing/video installation as part of its IN-FLUX window peek-show series, and on Tuesday, Feb. 15, Adams’ will culminate the work’s lifecycle with its final performance and destruction.
Adams' work straddles the domains of performance and installation art; his drawings are designed and created specific for their space, and immediately destroyed at the close of the exhibition. The feathery line-quality of Efflux’s graphite drawing evokes plumes of smoke, equally transitory and in keeping with the larger work's momentary existence. Alongside the installation's gestural work, a TV monitor loops footage of Adams creating the piece itself. And on February 15 the piece will be destroyed in a public performance, offering a complete metaphor for evolution - moving the viewer through creation, existence and destruction. Unlike Efflux’s creation, for the final performance Adams will relinquish his role as the works’ active participant and provoke pedestrians to walk on his work, thereby assuming active roles in the work’s anticipated end.
Join us on Tuesday, February 15th as an active participant in Efflux’s finale and literally leave your mark!
