Brendan Fernandes’ Inaction consists of sculptural elements, platforms, a large carpet, ropes, and a single channel video projection. Straddling both the visual arts and dance, Fernandes worked in collaboration with Norman Kelley to design mobile dance supports and platforms for activation by the audience and dancers. In public performances throughout the exhibition, Fernandes’ choreography will guide dancers to interact with the minimalist, sculptural installations giving them agency to rearrange the sculptures—allowing new spaces in which to create movements and to be seen or unseen in the exhibition space.
