Tony Feher is known for creating strikingly beautiful sculptures out of seemingly mundane objects. For this experiment, DiverseWorks invited the artist to consider how his sculptural work might inform, relate to or translate into live performance, a discipline largely unexplored by Feher to date.
Encompassing the main gallery space, Feher will create multiple spaces out of simple materials which will then be activated by several Houston-area composers, choreographers and writers over the course of the exhibition. These artists have been chosen by Feher and are creating new work in direct response to the installation and each other.
Leslie Scates is the featured artist for Feb. 6 and 9. Harrison Guy and dancers from Urban Soul Dance Company will be featured on March 9.
The final performance on March 16 features an encore of selected performances presented during the exhibition, including: Daniel Adame, Shanon Adams and Max Gardner in Trio; Mark Buller's Mixed Media - Remix; Rebecca Novak and Sandy Ewen in Damon Smith's Mild Intervention I & II; Mark Hirsch and jhon stronks in Bears (reprised); Urban Souls Dance Company's Duet; and Erin Reck and jhon stronks in Untitled Walking Pattern #40.
