_Bio_

Molly Wright Kreppel, born and raised in Los Angeles, moved to Vancouver in 2006 to pursue an education in art. She has been practicing photography for seven years and focuses the majority of her work on conceptual image making and connecting the photographic process with every other medium of art including sound, film, performance, writing, and sculpture. Having actors, dancers, musicians and singers in her family tree, she was brought up to be any of the aforementioned. Her interests within performance critique the mental and emotional pressures of the performing arts lifestyle and the passed down guilt and self-analysis that one inherits from their mentor.

Shadow Performances

Posted in Uncategorized on February 8, 2010 by hurricanemolly

Group One

Working in and around the sheet, creating a feeling of birth and human behaviors. Using vocal components to intensify the bodily qualities of the piece. Candles and incense also bring ideas of ritual and relgion into play.

Group 2

A list of weather conditions- all pertaining to percantages of water levels. Rain, snow, hail etc. etc. Umbrella that exists only in sillouette. Punch-line… we all get wet.

Group 3

(participated.)

Group 4

(No image available)

Spoken word + interpretive dance. Using light as a character in the performance rather than as the medium itself. A lost flower looking for light.

Yay for shadoooows.

Thanks to G for the photos.

Karin Andersson Dreijer is my favorite.

She’s the singer for The Knife and Fever Ray… and she certainly knows how to accept an award.

I consider this art.

3 (three) Performances

So here we go. These are some performance art works I think are spiffyfantastic.

John Cage : Water Walk, 1960

This is a video of John Cage appearing on the popular television show “I’ve Got a Secret” in 1960. The piece that he performs is called “Water Walk”. Cage choreographs a carefully timed series of events in which he creates noises using water related objects. He uses a water pitcher, an iron pipe, a goose call, a bottle of wine, an electric mixer, a whistle, a spinkler can, ice cubes, two symbols, a mechanical fish, a quail call, a rubber duck, a tape recorder, a vase of roses, a seltzer siphon, five radios, a bath tub, and a grand piano. Altogether, the piece is ambient and at times eerie sounding. What’s almost more entertaining then the work itself is the audience reaction to his performance.

Paul McCarthy : Painter, 1995

This is a video taken of a performance by Paul McCarthy entitled “Painter”. McCarthy, wearing exaggerated hands and cartoon-like nose, begins by attempting to explain to the audience how to paint. With exasperated breaths, he repeatly asks the audience to listen to him, and for the next few minutes, he doesn’t really say anything. He continues to mumble to himself, sounding panicked, until he begins spinning around in a circle chanting to himself “fuck I’m painting, fuck I’m painting, fuck I’m painting.” He begins to paint with what looks like chocolate, and we can also see a jar of mayo on his side table. Food is always a strong theme in his work, and in this piece he seems to me that he is critiquing the idea of the artist… who knows. I guess he does.

David Bryne : Interview 1980’s?

I’m not actually sure when this was filmed, probably sometime around 1984, but this is a video made by David Bryne and Jonathan Demme. Jonathan Demme filmed a documentary about Talking Heads playing in Hollywood over the course of three nights, and I believe this was a short film/performance associated with the movie. David Bryne dresses up as different characters and interviews himself. Hilarity ensues. Watch it for yourself.
