upon the horizon, a space of unknowing

"We must vacate the here and now for a then and there. Individual transports are insufficient. We need to engage in a collective temporal distortion. We need to step out of the rigid conceptualization that is a straight present." - from Cruising Utopia: The Then and There of Queer Futurity by José Esteban Muñoz

 

upon the horizon, a space of unknowing is a performance for contrabass clarinet, fixed media, and transducers that is part of an ongoing series of semi-improvisational works linking the breath, queer time, and the horizon as a site of aspiration.

performed 21 Sep 2017 in the Ando Gallery at the Art Institute of Chicago
