A Tussle with the Genius Loci (2018)

June 2018 brought a new installation by Catherine Nelson to Book Club Gallery.  The work explored a several-year long locking of horns with the spirit of place. What forms does it take? Are we part of it? And how much is it supposed to mean anyway? 

The opening featured an ongoing performance called "Secret Beach," choreographed & performed by Known Mass (Ann Glaviano, Rebecca Allen, Dewuan Frances). 

Movement was developed using the tools of experimental choreographer Deborah Hay, tools Nelson also consulted in her installation process.
