For this performance, we will be bringing together all the "Diamonds" in Victoria. By Diamonds we mean people who are named Diamond (dymond, diamant and diment, etc and anyone else who considers themselves a diamond) in order to "channel" their collective energy to make physical diamonds. This is not a pyramid money laundering scheme!
My name is Agnes Bolt and I'm a Los Angeles-based artistthe art work that I do usually involves the participation of groups of people in some form, and this time I will be a doing a commissioned project on January 11th, 2014 here in downtown Victoria. The project will also be documented in the form of a publication and video.
Essentially the purpose of the project is to create a playful performance that considers what we are willing to believe in, how groups coming together can create a certain "magic" or impetus for change, and to celebrate this idea with the creation of something tangibly magical- a diamond.
If you are interested, I would ask of you this:
To be present as a group member for the public performance happening in Victoria on Saturday afternoon, January 11th, 2014 (we will determine times based on participants availability The duration of the event will last about an hour plus short setup time. There is very little to the performance on your end, just your presence and following some simple instructions for standing and moving. It should be enjoyable and interesting.
Thanks for listening and I look forward to hearing from you!
