On view through Saturday, April 29th 2017
A performative installation that symbolizes the rhythm of Josifov’s ten-day/ten-hour performances is created over time. The public is invited to watch, interact and participate with the artist as he builds the exhibit Continuum from the morning into the evening each day. Josifov performs his unique process as he manifests a multimedia exhibit. He engages the audience as his installation expands throughout the week.
Continuum is presented as an evolving installation that viewers experience with all their senses. The installation mirrors the world through fire. It evokes an inescapable awareness that the fire is within us. Fire reflections transform into many shapes. For example, a performance costume in Untie is also a work of fire reflection art on linen, which then becomes an installation. Igor Josifov has been using fire as a medium for over a decade. He celebrates his process with films, installations, and performances. The artist uses fire as a mark-making tool on paper, linen, ceramic and glass.
