Works-in-Progress, Fall 2007

Posted August 20th, 2007


The Bridge Club has just returned from a week of performance activity in New York’s Hudson River Valley.

Seven performance sequences were shot to video at six distinct sites over six days, incorporating the watery landscape, its various myths, and its human occupation. The taped sequences will shortly become two companion performative video works, with editing sessions scheduled for October 2007. Stay tuned for forthcoming details about exhibition and screening dates and venues.

The corresponding images are taken from the Hudson Valley performance sessions. The Bridge Club extends a special thanks to the following individuals and organizations for their invaluable assistance with logistics, videography, and access to these remarkable locations: Marlana Owen; Jerry Owen of Owen Machine in Wappingers Falls, NY (845) 297-6349; David Hardy and crew at Building Bridges, Building Boats in Cold Spring, NY; Neil Caplan and the Bannermans Castle Trust; Smilin’ Jack Feddigan of Market Street Industrial Park in Wappingers Falls, NY; and finally, the Wappingers Falls Dog Control Officer. Many thanks!!
