PERFORMANCE “Li(sa E.) Harris | This is the Day” at Lawndale Art Center

April 8 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm


HAPPENING APRIL 8, 2024 at 12:30 PM to 3:01 PM: Taking place during the total solar eclipse over Texas, the exhibition “Li(sa E.) Harris | This is the Day” will culminate to tap into the cosmic cycles of the earth and sky on Monday, April 8 from 12:30 PM to 3:01 PM with the artist performance of “Onshore Trilling: What to Do When the Earth Sings the Bruise” in Lawndale’s outdoor space at 4900 Main St., Houston 77002.

This exhibition assembles photography, analog technology, video, and resonant sounds that reflect a survey of the artist’s past work and artistic practice that focuses on the energetic relationships between body, land, spirit, and place. The exhibition includes relics and electronics from Harris’ family, fused together to fill the gallery space with frequencies that erode in relation to the respective battery life of each object. Overhead, perforated sails mimic the sky, reminding us of ever-present cosmic constellations which orient our earth and dream spaces.

Harris uses voice, theremin, electronics, movement, improvisation, meditation, and new media to explore healing in performance and everyday living. Often, her projects unfold over time in acts.

For navigation by visitors, the center of the gallery includes something that could be—a boom, a cannon, a telescope peering northward, bringing 4900 Main Street (where the eclipse performance will take place) into focus.
