Sarina Eastman and Eliza Fernand are collaborating on sculptures, costumes, and sound, to create an installation that will be transformed by a performance. Flowery boulders, a canopy of glittering baubles, and a polychromatic crocheted wall will house the quest of two slithering critters in puffy-painted bodysuits. Four receptions will be held for the installation to be experienced before and after the performance.
