Among Flowers in BloomCourtesy of Shea Kluender and Julie Rothschild
“Among Flowers in Bloom” is an interdisciplinary presentation which will take place on March 31st at 10:00 am and April 3rd at 7:30 pm at the House of Serein. The concept of the performance was ideated by the multidisciplinary artist Belgin Yucelen and was developed in the frame of an attempt to encourage walking lightly on earth.
The presentation will consist of installation art, and a dance performance. The installation will include 500 transparent silk flowers in the form of a narrow path which will appear to be rising at one end to suggest disappearance and impermanence. The dance will be performed by the choreographer and dance artist Julie Rothschild.
The repeating of the flowers will dematerialize and deemphasize the flower itself similar to the repetitive patterns in a mosque. The extension into the space-time of the environment will encourage an interaction with the visitors through personalization. While the lightness of the silk suggests fragility, the concept of walking lightly on earth will be reemphasized by Julie who will move around and within the art installation, responding to the artwork’s narrative and the space around it.
This collaboration is the result of an ‘integrated process’ during when Julie and Belgin step into the other’s area of expertise providing input for each other creating new vocabularies.
