Event description:

Opening Reception in Wolfs Lane Park for ModernDance, an installation by Elizabeth Knowles and Bill Thielen.

Natural patterns inspire the work of Elizabeth Knowles and William Thielen. Separately they have created individual bodies of work over the last 25 years. During this time they were engaging in a dynamic, verbal dialogue on aesthetics and philosophy. Resulting from this long-term discourse is the recent collaboration the site-specific outdoor installation ModernDance. ModernDance celebrates and responds to the natural environment of landscape. Consisting of a series of colorful arches of differing sizes created from wire fencing and surveyor’s tape, ModernDance collaborates with the environmental setting in shape and size, ascending and descending in an undulating rhythm mirroring the organic tempo of the landscape. Because the installation is site specific, it changes size and shape each time it is installed. Adhering to the particular site, the installation responds in form to the configuration of the landscape with arches grouping in and out of the trees and plant growth, resulting in an endless possibility of color, form, and fusion.
