  • As a kind of temporal Cubism, secret performers reanimate drawings printed on acrylic transparency, notations of dances made and felt by Lucy M. May while in residence in her native province of New Brunswick. This installation creates a womb-like cave space with brown kraft paper, two CD players playing a composition by Patrick Conan, and an overhead projector. The audience is invited to touch, linger, try, rest, and dream, while observing and participating in the play of light and shadow on paper walls. The multiplicity of limbs is a rough animation, recalling prehistoric drawings made in France’s Chauvet Cave. Past and present enfold each other in the reading of drawings, as if the motions previously made were still reverberating; as if the body who traced them were just there, moments ago, with you in the room.
