In residence: November 10 – 22, 2009
Steven Vega’s film Harbor combines costume design, dance, video, and music to create echoes of a surreal world. Set within a seamless black space, Harborfocuses on various combinations of light and texture. It presents a dialogue between characters through dance. It highlights the subtle fluctuations of a conductor along with a musical score. Sheep’s wool is used to cover the body, face, and hands of the players, and braids link bodies to each other. Ultimately,Harbor explores Vega’s underlying belief that film allows a moment of extreme intimacy for the viewer. The screening on November 21 was also accompanied by a live musical performance. This footage was filmed and edited by the artist.
