Mauve Bird with Yellow Teeth Red Feathers Green Feet and a Rose Belly, Part: BLUE



Mauve Bird with Yellow Teeth Red Feathers Green Feet and a Rose Belly: Part BLUE is a moving installation consisting of vast colors, everyday object assemblages, sound and a live performance to create a psychological changing landscape commenting on stillness and primal empathy. By composing sculpture with dancers, Ettun creates a sense of what she calls a “handheld history” examining the transformation of cultural and psychological narratives through the lens of personal accounts and perspectives.
This body of work is a teratology; A new installment will premiere each year until the completion of the project in 2018. Each part will be based on a color and an emotion – Blue/empathy, Pink/aggression, Yellow/desire, Orange/joy.
