Tamar Ettun: My Hands Are the Shape of My Height

September 20 – October 25, 2014

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 20, 6 - 8pm

Transformer presents a multi-media installation by Brooklyn-based Israeli artist Tamar Ettun, showcasing a selection of sculptures, photographs and video from a recent series entitled Performing Stillness. Investigating sculpture and performance’s dual relationship to movement and stillness, temporality and permanence, the works exhibited explore the inversion of these mediums’ capabilities, questioning how sculpture and performance can switch roles and stimulate a physical reaction or sensation within the viewer.
