“(re)buffer”

(AB, KB, RG)

 

April 8 - June 22

 

Continuance obliges provocation—an incitement to engage. One entity addresses another, and the address becomes the conversation. A rebuff is not a negation but a statement which begs a response.

 

(re)buffer is action and reaction, allowing artistic resolve to extend beyond the limitations of intent or the conceit of interpretation; it is an embracing of the act of conversing unto itself. Presented in 4 acts, the movement begins with the neutrality of architectural space (including remnants of the past) being confronted (antagonized) by the entrance and complicity of object(s); Subsequently, (enter the protagonist of color) form is advanced through the characters of visual language, setting up the climax in act three, which culminates in a moment of sensory extravagance. Act 4 finds the actors quietly exiting, while absentmindedly leaving hints of future revelation.
