'Floor of the Forest' performance

These are some photographs I took while watching the beautiful installation/performance Floor of the Forest last October in the Queen Elizabeth Hall foyer. Floor of the Forest was choreographed by Trisha Brown in 1970 and has been performed since in gallery and museum spaces. Two performers dress and undress their way through a free-standing structure threaded with clothing. A normally vertical activity is performed horizontally and reshaped by the pull of gravity. It is great that one has the opportunity to watch this again at the Barbican Art Gallery on the 5th and 6th of March, 11am, along with a rummage sale based on her 1971 version. The visitors will have a chance to browse through customised clothes and accessories made by artists in the gallery. Tickets are available here.
