“Mauve Bird with Yellow Teeth Red Feathers Green Feet and a Rose Belly” is a moving installation consisting of vast colors, everyday object assemblages, sound and a live performance to create a psychological changing landscape commenting on stillness and primal empathy.
By composing sculpture with dancers, Ettun creates a sense of what she calls a “handheld history” examining the transformation of cultural and psychological narratives through the lens of personal accounts and perspectives.
This body of work is a tetralogy; A new installment will premiere each year until the completion of the project in 2018.
Each part will be based on a color and season – Blue/Winter, Red/Spring, Yellow/Summer, Orange/Fall
Images: Stills from video, performance at the Watermill Center, sculptures.
