In Performance: o’death (COIL)

o’ death / Findlay//Sandsmark + Pettersen

A performance of seemingly opposing concepts and representations: natural and synthetic, cold and warmth, intimacy and distance o’ death is a challenge to the concept of mortality and an exploration of anxiety amidst mechanized rustling tree branches and towering, glowing monolithic sculptures of white packing styrofoam. While presenting an imposing mass, these structures are revealed to be light and fragile, easily manipulated, and denying nourishment or shelter to lone performer, Marit Sandsmark. The piece’s sound design is particularly striking, every hum, whisper, mechanized rustle of leaves, and styrofoam squeak is amplified, engulfing the audience and inspiring alternatively claustrophobia and the openness of nature.
