Each Absent Breath

Clarissa Tossin and Michelle Agnes Magalhães
August 5–8, 2023
Studio 1—Goodman

Artist Clarissa Tossin and composer Michelle Agnes Magalhães are in residence in Studio 1 to work with Wave Field Synthesis. This new work combines performances by Alethia Lozano Birrueta playing ceramic 3D printed versions of pre-Columbian flutes with poetry by Rosa Chávez and commentary by Tohil Fidel Brito Bernal. The installation utilizes audio recordings from Tossin’s moving image work Before the Volcanoes Sing (EMPAC, Fall 2022) and will be presented as part of the building-wide exhibition Shifting Center.
