Performance: Jacob Graham – “Lucifer Brings Electric Light to the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair”
In partnership with The Hudson Eye, Window On Hudson is delighted to present “Jacob Graham’s Creatures of Yes in Suspended Animation.” As part of this month long exhibit Graham will be presenting “Lucifer Brings Electric Light to the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair” on Saturday, August 21st, 6 and 7:30pm.
In explaining the live performance, Graham says “‘Lucifer Brings Electric Light to the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair’ is a live, object puppetry performance piece. It presents the fallen angel as ‘the light bearer’, electrifying the global celebration of man’s achievements and hinting at ominous consequences for that progress. This piece plays with layers of time and considers it as subject matter, stylistic veneer, and audience perspective – the setting of the piece is 1893 Chicago, the performance style is mid-century New York City, and the audience perspective is the present (for now).”
In the ongoing exhibition viewers will find a variety of Graham’s short films being simultaneously projected in the storefront windows 24/7. The exhibition continues indoors with additional videos amid a fully realized environment, transporting the visitor into the land occupied by the Creatures of Yes.
