Eurythmy #2: Latifa Medjdoub & Haco / Tania Chen / Wobbly / Dereck Phillips

Visual artist LATIFA MEDJDOUB and sound artist HACO collaborate on Eurythmy#2, a social performance-concert at the Museum of Performance + Design inspired by nature’s energy and rhythmical order that is inviting an active public to reflect on the multiple levels of interconnectedness between individuals and networks. At the performance, the public will use sculptural modular elements and collaborate on the construction of a vast ephemeral flexible architecture in relation to live environmental sound designed by Japanese artist HACO. Through this unparalleled artistic experience, participants will gradually be transported within the material space of an expansive soft fiber-sculpture and the immaterial space of open ended environmental sound.

The fiber sculptures involved in Eurythmy #2 will be in part conceived through the Strings Series Workshop, in San Francisco and Portland. In San Francisco, the workshop will take place on May 20 at the Museum of Performance + Design. Combining mundane objects with sophisticated textile art techniques, the workshop will stimulate creative social interactions while exploring notions of space, time, and movement. Eurythmy #2 and Strings Series Workshop is presented by the Museum of Performance and Design in partnership with Latifa Medjdoub and Haco, with the lead support of the Fleishhacker Foundation and Grants for the Arts; the Glean Artist Residency, a program by Recology, Metro and Crakedpots from both Portland and San Francisco: and supported by APICC, Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center (Threading Resilience).
