Miami, FL – December 1, 2020 – On an unusually brisk night in Miami’s Design DistrictLocust Projects kicked off its Miami Art Week events with Liminal, an outdoor performance by Miami-based artist Mette Tommerup presented in conjunction with her exhibition Made by Dusk. Viewed from the parking lot behind Locust Projects starting at twilight, the sold-out performance included video projections on a massive canvas streaming down from the roof covering a portion of the parking lot upon which were placed blocks of dry ice. Attendees were invited to make a symbolic offering to the Nordic Goddess Freya by dripping honey from small jars onto the individual cubes, creating a hazy fog through sublimation that captured the light, enveloping all in a warm, golden glow. The artist appeared from her position on the roof at various intervals during the four 30-minute performances, at times laboriously pulling and lowering massive canvases and, at others, casting a stream of golden flowers across the scene below. Ambient ethereal sounds by artist-composer, Dave Brieske, filled the night air as attendees’ honeyed wishes and desires were cast heavenward. Tommerup’s Made by Dusk and videos by Janine Antoni and Stephen Petronio and Paula Wilson are on view by appointment or walk-ins by capacity Wed – Sat 11am to 5pm.
