"Cage Dies Bird Flies - performance" and large paintings - {Re}HAPPENING 2014


Ben Miller and I presented the debut performance of "Cage Dies Bird Flies" in April 2014 at the {Re}HAPPENING, held at the campus of the old Black Mountain College near Asheville, North Carolina. The site we were assigned for our performance was a boathouse next to lake Eden. I made four large paintings to wrap around the boathouse structure to create a stage.

Over the course of three hours we performed more than 35 of the "Cage Dies" texts. Images of the four large paintings and sample photos are given below.
