In Project Atrium: Amanda Coogan, Irish performance-based artist Amanda Coogan becomes partially enveloped by a large, sweeping piece of colored fabric. As she stands in its center, the undulating material moves in irregular patterns as sections that gather and release in large part due to a concealed pulley system. In The Ladder is Always There, the dramatic movements recall scenic views of clouds or mountains. Throughout the performance, Coogan’s body is surrounded in the ever changing landscape, further commenting on the relationship of the body to nature and vice versa. Coogan will perform in the Atrium Gallery at specific times from November 26th through 30th, culminating in a final performance during the opening reception on November 30th.
