SITUATE / 18 February to 30 June 2011
Performance and Video artist Wendy will be working on a new series of performance and video pieces that continue her creative research in Australia. (Woodson was a Fulbright Senior Scholar in residence at VCA in 2006-07). The first project is an ongoing multi-channel video installation entitled Transitions that is based on interviews with refugees and immigrants currently living in Australia; these interviews are exhibited with large scale projected images of displacement, migration and disappearing landscapes. The final version of this project will be exhibited in Melbourne at the Victorian Immigration Museum, July 2011-January 2012. Woodson will also be working a new movement/theater piece entitled Dora that is concerned with relationships between body, memory and ecology. In addition, LaMaMa Theater in Melbourne will present a one woman performance piece, She Turned on the Light, written and directed by Woodson June 22-26, 2011. This piece, written during Woodson's last residency in Melbourne was presented at LaMaMa Etc. in New York last year and features a performance by Brazilian actress Marina Libel.
