The Fosdick-Nelson Gallery is proud to present a performance installation created by D. Chase Angier of Angier Performance Works, in collaboration with Luftwerk, The Tiffany Mills Company, Kristi Spessard, Laurel Jay Carpenter, The Alfred Performers, Andrew Deutsch, John Laprade and Marketa Fantova. Each week is a new experience, intricately interweaving 8,000 pounds of rice, evocative movement and sensuous designs into slowly shifting landscapes.
Over the course of the exhibition, the installation will change and new performances will take place in the gallery each week. See below for performance times and special events accompanying the exhibition. All events are free and open to the public.

In addition to the main event there will also be a silent art auction supported by the Alfred Foundry Guild, proceeds from which will be going to support various charitable organizations.
Kira O’Reilly is a UK-based artist. Her practice is both willfully interdisciplinary and entirely undisciplined, and stems from a visual art background. In her work she employs performance, biotechnical practices and writing to consider speculative reconfigurations around the body.
Since graduating from the University of Wales Institute Cardiff in 1998, her work has been exhibited widely throughout the UK, Europe, Australia, China and Mexico. She has presented at conferences and symposia on live art and science, as well as art and technology interfaces.
Cosponsored by: The Division of Sculpture/Glass Area, SOAD, College of Ceramics, and Interdisciplinary Art, CLAS with support from the Dance Program in Performing Arts, CLAS, Alfred University and Grace Exhibition Space, Brooklyn.
