Cécile Pitois:
inhale-exhale from A to C

Tuesday, September 25–Saturday, October 20, 2007
Co-presented with Dance Theater Workshop

From French visual artist Cécile Pitois comes an elegant installation that puts the spectator at the center of attention. As part of a collaborative effort made specifically for New York City, inhale-exhale from A to C asks the viewer to interact with the artwork—to walk on it, to sit on it, to think and breathe in its space— with only one condition: that they do so mindfully.

In addition to visitors’ own explorations, Pitois invites three outstanding choreographers to perform in the space. These performances bring the body to the center of the artwork to reveal how thought and thing, the mental and the physical, can potentially relate in an intimate, symbiotic whole.
