Doubling, architecture, duration, and displacement—Halve Knots, the work of Lou Mallozzi, will unfold and offer an interweaving of sound, text, image, and action that allows the audience to drift or focus as desired.
Open to the public, this program will feature four pieces that include performance, installation, and drawing:
Two Rooms (for DVM) (2005), looping video with stereo sound.
Talk to the wall (2016), performed by Anna Orlikowska and Willy Smart with voice-activated piano.
Module (2016), installation with four tape measures.
Decades (for MM) (2016), a durational performance and drawing by Lou Mallozzi.
