Self-Immersed Exhibition

Fellows Event

This exhibition presents Meredith Monk's 5-channel video and audio installation Bloodline Shrine alongside works by installation artists Karen Tam and Tracey Snelling. The exhibition is curated by Rico Reyes and presented in partnership with the Hartford Art School.

"Bloodline Shrine was conceived as both a stand-alone installation and an introduction or overture to Cellular Songs, Meredith Monk’s music-theater piece exploring the interconnected relationships between human beings and the natural world, between the basic unit of life and the universe. Each video monitor in the installation displays the lifeline and physical attributes of one of the five performers, including voice, face, parts of the body, medical images, and photos of ancestors. These visual strands reflect the richness and complexity of the performers’ DNA. The shrine serves as a meditation on the source of life as well as an intimate introduction to each of the performers, who are heard singing two musical excerpts from Cellular Songs."
