Sister Taking Nap Apr 16, 2009

I went to see Wynne Greenwood's piece, Sister Taking Nap, at On the Boards tonight. I don't know too much about her work other than the fact that I should know more. I saw video of her performance work (which is kind of fitting) as Tracy + the Plastics but that's the extent of it. The set is minimal. Imagination: abundant. Humor is drawn from repetition and keen timing. In this piece she works with Gina Young, of TEAM GINA, who's arms are used by Wynne as both telephone and refrigerator door water dispenser. It's about change.

Take a peek at this lo-fi video: (click the image to open up the video in a new window)

Wynne Greenwood in ArtForum Apr 9, 2009

Wynne was asked to write up a little something for  an ArtForum  feature called  500 Words. From artforum.com's intro:

Infused with a solid dose of humor and feminist theory, Wynne Greenwood’s sculptures, videos, and live performances collapse sonic, linguistic, and visual hierarchies in an effort to incite personal and political transformation.

The Stranger Suggests - Wynne Greenwood Apr 8, 2009

Jen Graves suggests you catch both the visual art exhibit at the Hedreen and the performance at OtB by Wynne Greenwood:
...Walking between them feels like interrupting something intimate—but what? The only way to find out more is across town next week at On the Boards, where Wynne Greenwood presents the performance that relates to this "set," a new piece called Sister Taking Nap.
