In tandem with the Body Language exhibition, dance artist Carolyn Pampalone-Rabbers will creatively install multiple screenings of newly developed dance performances and body movements. Rabbers is a member of Wellspring/Cori Terry & Dancers. She graduated from Western Michigan University with a BFA in Dance and has performed for Coldplay, Omi, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Poet Theatricals, The Union Project Dance Company, LACDC, Clairobscur, Vox Lumiere’s Phantom of the Opera, Diavolo EdCo, & Nickerson-Rossi Dance Company.
This artlab exhibition explores the evolution of domestic appliances and how they have gradually shaped humans into creatures of comfort. Consisting of sculptural apparatuses connected through the elements and functions of domestic appliances, Yehelena & Michael re-imagine these household object’s place within consumption, preservation, sustainability, and necessity. By altering the functionality of domestic appliances, the tools are turned into metaphors that reflect our dependency on these devices and the desire to break free from their comforting grasp at the same time.
