An Article by Camille LeFevre

On Location: The BodyCartography Project Talks About the Importance of Place

Someone wrote my paper!

This paper looks great:

The audience completes the piece: Site-specific dance choreographers as unalienating laborers
by Rachel Engh 

I love that I wrote down the same quote from the book, One Place After Another: Site-Specific Art and Locational Identity,  that Ms. Engh begins her paper with. Thank you Miwon Kwon!

What IS the artwork?

I love this...

Suzanne Lacy, of Chicago’s public art project Culture in Action, claims: “…what exists in the space between the words public and art is an unknown relationship between artist and audience, a relationship that may itself be the artwork” (Kwon, 105).  

I'm curious how this unknown relationship exists in dance in public spaces. I think the new experience created by having performances in familiar, public spaces is the art. The context creates the art. 

What do you think?
