This three day exhibition at NOoSPHERE Arts presents the work of Rita Marhaug in collaboration with Nisa Ojalvo and focuses on the dialogue of interface – the meeting point of subjects and their selected materials and processes. For Ojalvo this is the meeting point of her fleshy eye and the camera’s mechanical body to touch with the performance gestures she and Marhaug instigate. For Marhaug it is the poetic qualities of skin – at once recto/verso and the tactile quality of drapery as membrane. Together the artists create a trajectory of intersubjectivity through the process of collaboration… Where does one end and the other begin?
Marhaug’s performance Second Skin will be brought to NYC audiences by NOoSPHERE. In the main space Nisa Ojalvo’s photographic works of collaborative performances with Marhaug will be on view, with further drawing works by Marhaug presented in the rear space.
