On Saturday, March 26, 2016, Northern–Southern hosted BLUE FLAMES. a day of performances – live drawing, music, spoken word, theater, performance art, and combinations thereof. WARM ASHES will celebrate, memorialize, honor, explain, opine, or forget to mention most of that day. This show may be of interest to both those who were there at BLUE FLAMES and those who missed it.
Like a flame is an action as an object, the art at BLUE FLAMES existed for the ‘now’. Intended to reference the past, the documentations in WARM ASHES are also new things, contexts and experiences in and of themselves. Documentary objects are mirrors in windows.
