Performance: Sarah Hill, They Wonder

  • BLUEorange Gallery 1208 W Gray St Houston, TX, 77019 United States (map)

Suplex and BLUEorange invite you to a live performance of They Wonder by Texas-based artist Sarah Hill. In the artist's own words: "I hand crafted my own version of a Wonder Woman costume. During the performance They Wonder I repeatedly spin around and around in circles until I fall down. I am interested in the repetitive action of spinning and getting no-where, falling down and getting back up. This specific action of spinning comes from Dara Birnbaum piece Technology/Transformation: Wonder Woman (1978). Birnbaum has wonder woman spin around and around. They Wonder goes against the populist template of art as a form of leisure or entertainment. I am not a blockbuster artist.”

They have performed at the following places, International Performance Platform Festival in Lublin, Poland at Gallery Labirynt, and at Performatorium 2014: Festival of Queer Performance Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.
