Jonah Bokaer’s Platform Project for the Parrish Art Museum is currently on view on the East End through October 16.
The choreographer and media artist’s complemented his exhibition with an acclaimed sold out performance and live installation last month, entitled “The Disappearance Portraits” . The Platform series features multimedia works by the interdisciplinary artist, notably a two-channel projection of a new choreographic work for film, shot against the dramatic vistas of the Parrish Art Museum.
The artist has also created 122 choreographic drawings based on the musical score of Morton Feldman and Samuel Beckett‘s 1977 opera Neither. The delicate drawings are installed on the wooden beams that form the museum’s central corridor.
Bokaer’s multi-disciplinary background has allowed him to develop an entirely singular approach to choreography, oriented especially towards the interaction between the human body and technology. Bokaer is currently a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellow and United States Artists Fellow in Dance (Ford Foundation).
