Video from Emily Francisco’s Evening of Performances

On 24, Apr 2013 | In Artist Feature, Events, Video | By tfdcadmin

On Saturday, April 20, artist Emily Francisco hosted a series of performances at The Fridge. Emily constructs situations that manifest in response to personal and physical understandings of limitation and loss. Her work is not destructive, though it involves deconstruction. She pushes the limits of how much an object can withstand, while exploring how things can transform.

The night opened with a classical cello performance featuring David Ross utilizing a bow that not only played the instrument, but also sourced a live radio feed. It concluded with a performance by Emily. She played a toy piano constructed in an enclosed space while it slowly flooded with water.

Watch a video recap of the evening:
