Opening Night Preview Performance: A DANCER IS NOT A SCULPTURE BUT A SCULPTURE IS A DANCE
Presented by: the Art Gallery of Ontario
Award winning Toronto-based artist Diane Borsato will be producing a new work from the series A DANCER IS NOT A SCULPTURE BUT A SCULPTURE IS A DANCE live on site during the Art Toronto Opening Night Preview, Thursday October 26.
The video series features dancers responding to the form, space and context of modern public sculpture in Toronto – including Large Two Forms by Henry Moore (recently moved to Grange Park) and the untitled (Mountain) by Anish Kapoor.
Together with dancer Lukas Malkowski and Deaf Artist Ralista Rodgriguez, choreographer Valerie Calam and cinematographer Jason Tan – the artist will shoot a new work to produce both a discursive and choreographic response to Art Toronto, using America Sign Language (ASL) and a wider vocabulary of improvised movement.
The artist and crew will move throughout the exhibition to shoot short video segments – and work on developing the choreography live on site.
Videos from the new ongoing series by Diane Borsato will also be projected in the Art Toronto stage throughout the duration of the fair.
