We already have Friday, July 15 circled on our calendar. That’s when musician-performance artist-aerialist Ryder Cooley will be premiering her new major work, “Xmalia,” at Proctors in Schenectady.
Last Friday, Cooley squeezed into the fabulously funky Warren Street corner art space (Hi)story Labor(atory) in Hudson to offer a sneak preview of the show amid a standing-room-only crowd and the captivating artwork of Limor Gasko, Dennis Herbert, Kahn & Selesnick and others (including a rather unsettling display of bejeweled deer skulls by Cooley herself).
OK, Cooley’s multimedia performance art masterwork “Animalia” was originally presented at RPI in Troy back in March, ’08, and was later re-invented on the mainstage at Proctors in Schenectady in September, ’08. Now, thanks to artist Bart Woodstrup, “Animalia” has been animated – or perhaps re-animated – as you can see in the above video.
