Hotter than July video installation (excerpt)
“Hotter Than July, a 120-minute performance/film collaboration by Rush Jackson and Vitche Boul-ra, imagines the Icebox Project Space as an open landscape for an alternative spatial experience through rhythmic approaches to audio, video, and the spiritual/fleshly body. It exists as a transmutation of external and internal space, an investigation of repositioning.
The Icebox becomes a space of Displacement,
Recognition, Hots before Colds, and a pilgrimagepoint to negotiate the collective and individual composition.Emphasizing improvisation, attendees are encouraged to surpass the witness point to develop a relationship to participation—to Being—that feels fruitful. Attendees manifest agency, and when the space asks a question, they reply with queries rather than answers.”
