KS Art announces come across an exhibition of new abstract
watercolors by Kim Gordon. Painted on translucent rice paper these
ethereal images recall faces of audience members from the perspective
of the performer. This exhibition also includes a sound piece that
Gordon has created in collaboration with Thurston Moore.
"I'm interested in the relationship between performer and audience,
and the unspoken power that a performer has. For example, you
sometimes have more power if youâ€™re vulnerable; thereâ€™s a certain
amount of trust that the audience gives you and they want you to come
across for them.
"I thought about this kind of alternative perspective when I was
doing a series of watercolors that depict audience members from the
point of view of being on stage. I was trying to see how abstract I
could make them and have them still look like faces. I used metallic
inks to give the effect that I was turning the lightshow on the
audience. I was trying to reverse the idea in my head that the
audiences were the performers, and the performer is the audience".
