|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until Sunday, November 17, 2019

Green-Wood Cemetery, 500 25th Street
Brooklyn, NY 11232 United States
+ Google Map

This fall, Green-Wood is thrilled to unveil a site-specific installation in the Cemetery’s Catacombs by acclaimed artist Janine Antoni.

For nearly three decades, Antoni has used the body, most often her own, as a tool and a subject for her artwork. In I am fertile ground, she expands on this theme by using the language of religious icons to pay homage to what she has discovered through her improvisational dance practice. The instinctual ways that the body moves allow it to communicate and express itself, as well as serve as a vehicle for spiritual experiences. Idiosyncratic gestures are contextualized by those that are more recognizable, like hands clasped in prayer. Each work enshrines a gesture, rendering it as both exalted and fragile.
