Forget Your Perfect Offering

CCA SANTA FE
2013

 

Sunday, January 13, 1-4pm

Using a traditional thigh spindle, Matthew Chase-Daniel will spin yarn from Churro fleece. The wool, the spindle and the spinner are engaged in ancient and ongoing roles relating to creation and maintenance of harmony in the world.

 

Santa Fe-based artists Sydney Cooper and Edie Tsong present a new collaboration in the form of an installation and performance series called Forget Your Perfect Offering. This creative space illuminates the struggle to find meaning through object arrangement, ancestor worship, and celebration of everyday life in a ritual setting. This show celebrates the many ways we make meaning out of what we do. Blending religions, traditions, icons, mundane objects and repetitive activities, the artists create moments of introspection and community togetherness while highlighting the hybrid nature of contemporary ritual. Cooper and Tsong invite a spectrum of other local artists to produce performances throughout the run of this unique show.


Performances: Erika Wanenmacher, Adam McKinney, Sydney Cooper and Lucio Cooper da Silva, Ruth D'Arcy and Laura Seward, Alicia Marie Rencountre da Silva, Rose B. Simpson, Miriam Sagan, Jamie Figueroa, Jennifer Joseph, Matthew Chase-Daniel, Edie Tsong, Joan Logghe, Tuscany Wenger.
