Swimming to Egypt

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.

Tonight’s residency will be with Seattle choreographer and experimental dance filmmaker, Karn Junkinsmith.

Karn’s dance film work began in 1990, when she collaborated with Lena Sharpe on GIRLS FIND WAYS TO GETTHERE, a dance of three female archetypes: Joan of Arc, witch and pregnant virgin. Her directorial debut, the whimsical DAYOFF, produced in association with Northwest Film Forum and shot by Lynn Shelton screened at Lincoln Center, BUS STOPscreened at the Red Cat in Los Angeles, and ALCHEMY OF THEORACLES screened at Local Sightings. THE CHRONICLES OFCLEO & JACK shot on 16mm black & white is a story told with pictures, music, skateboarding and dancing screened at Northwest Film Forum’s Local Sightings and the Sans Souci Film Festival in Boulder Colorado in 2010. Her most recent film NIGHTFALLS ON JACK AND CLEO shot by Ben Kasulke on super 16 screened at Local Sightings in October of 2011.
