Ready Set Sail!
Superbien Greenhouse for Contemporary Art
September 2007, Berlin, Germany
Set in a greenhouse lined with one-way mirror paper and navigating the audience in and out, the collaborative of Dance Gang (Kennis Hawkins and Will Rawls), musician/architect Jeremy Linzee, and artist/curator Trong Gia Nguyen imagined the space as a departure point, lighthouse, and vessel that acted as a beacon, biosphere, and site for "collection." Channeling the author Alain de Botton (The Art of Travel) and explorers such as Alexander von Humboldt, Hannibal, and Ulysses, Ready Set Sail! incorporated dance, sound, and interactive performance to conjure the inherent poetry of locomotion and discovery.
