performance entitled “RACE”
is the result of a collaboration between Miami based visual artist Mirek Chudy
and Sarasota visual artist and liveFORM originator Wojtek Sawa.
“RACE” explores symbol and playfulness. Viewers are asked to participate in the performance by altering and giving new meaning to a large scale painting. Super soakers filled with paint will be handed to viewers. They will transform the painting and its meaning through their actions. In the end two paintings will be created. It is our belief that art hovers between the serious and the playful and the juxtaposition is sometimes needed to provide a more meaningful and dramatically potent context. Viewer participation brings in improvisation and an element of the unknown. The structure of the event leads to a transformation of a symbol.
