Mike Pham: How to Make a One Minute Sculpture


January 12 @ 6pm
Test Site

Throughout the Henry’s presentation of Erwin Wurm’s One Minute Sculptures visitors will have the opportunity to engage in a variety of participatory experiences designed to explore the concepts introduced in Wurm’s One Minute Sculptures. From interactive sculpture making and object-based movement workshops to afternoon residencies with local artists, Visitors are encouraged to question their definition of sculpture by encountering their own unexpected relationships with everyday objects.

Mike Pham is a performance artist, director and designer whose work operates at the intersection of theater, dance, improvisation, video montage and sculpture and embraces a non-linear approach to artmaking that challenges presumed roles of performer, producer, director, and observer. He attended New York University and the Atlantic Theater Company Acting School and is a graduate of Seattle Central Creative Academy with a degree in graphic design and illustration. He is co-creative principal of performance group Helsinki Syndrome and participated in two consecutive artist residencies at Richard Foreman’s Ontological-Hysteric Incubator (2008–09). He has performed in Seattle: (Velocity Dance Center’s Next Fest NW, On the Boards’ NW New Works Festival and 12 Minutes Max, CityArts Fest, NEPO House, Seattle Art Museum REMIX, Hedreen Gallery, Annex Theatre, Seattle School, Strange Coupling, Open Circle Theater), Portland, OR: (Risk/Reward Festival of New Performance), New York: (Ontological-Hysteric Incubator), Vancouver BC: (Or Gallery) and London, UK: (Camden People’s Theatre SPRINT Festival).
