FREAKISHLY CARNIVALESQUE VAUDEVILLIAN PORTRAITURE MEETS AERIAL PERFORMANCE ART INSTALLATIONS AT FEMINA POTENS - ‘UNDER THE BIG TOP', VISUAL ART INSTALLATION

 

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA - APRIL 4, 2009 7-10pm- Femina Potens invites you to experience the circus like you never have before. Our April exhibit invokes a deliciously deviant curiosity for the magical and absurd. "Under the Big Top" explores the awe and wonder of circus performance, featuring decadently painted aerial acrobats, pretzel-like contortionists and fire breathing phantoms pushing their appearance and bodies to the upmost limits.

 

Join us April 4th from 7-9pm, as we celebrate marvels and enchantment at the opening reception of "Under the Big Top". We proudly welcome Anja Ulfeldt, Catherine Murty, Gabe Scelta, Kally Kahn, Rachael Jablo, and window installation artist Lilea Duran to the Femina Potens circus tent.

 

As a unique and scintillating treat, Local Installation Artist Catherine Murty will be collaborating with aerialist Sonya Smith to create a spectacular interactive light sculpture that will be suspended from the ceiling. Smith will perform throughout the month:

Opening night (April 4th 7:45)

Saturday April 11th 12:30-1:30pm

Sunday April 19th 4:30- 5:30pm

Saturday April 25th 12:30-1:30pm

 

We welcome all circus freaks to the center ring at Femina Potens. Opening Reception April 4th, 2009 7-10pm. Show Runs April 4 - 26, 2009.
