In Over & Over, artists work with themes of pattern and repetition through the use of habitual behavior and sustained methodology, obsessively rhythmic actions and repetitive results, and patterned subjects and resulting objects; and by taking something having no weight on its own and creating meaning through the use of accumulation.

The Artist’s Body
Tuesday, November 28, 5:00 – 7:00pm
Conaway Center
1104 S Wabash Ave

In conjunction with Over & Over, Kyra Peterson presents The Artist’s Body an exploration of repetitive forms that interrogate the relationship between post-modern dance movement and performance art- where these forms intersect and where there is room for the boundaries of these forms to mesh. This exhibition presents two works; “6HRS,” a series of six concrete reliefs of the body, and “to shrug like silk,” a solo work choreographed and performed by Peterson projected onto three screens. These pieces embody three years of research in correspondence with the completion of a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts and were created during a semester long independent study as a part of her thesis for Columbia College Chicago’s Dance Department.
