Postponed: Twirling, Not Spiraling
Event Update: This event has been postponed; new date to be announced.
Twirling, Not Spiraling (2022)
by Lara Saab
Twirling, Not Spiraling is a documentary performance and installation by Lara Saab that includes xerox-printed social/media posts, maps, a series of drawings and sketches, magnets, sand, found objects, sound, and moving images. This iteration of the performance is site specific and draws from research around coastal life along the coasts of Beirut, Lebanon, where Saab is based, and Santa Cruz, California, where they are currently studying. The material is woven together from personal archives, collected memories, social media content, recorded video and sound material reflecting around the sea and the ocean.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Exemplary films from the Social Documentation M.F.A. cohorts (2021 and 2022) rotate in an exhibition called Frames Per Second. The films document communities, cultures, issues, and individuals who are marginalized in the current landscape of representation, and reveal how the documentarians are working for social transformation. Find more information about the filmmakers here on the Sesnon Gallery website.
- Attend in person
- Free and open to the public
