Chelsea Coon performs '9:50:45' daily this week: Tuesday-Sunday

9:50:45 will be a new site-specific performance by Chelsea Coon especially created for Articulate project space.

9:50:45 will be of 6 hours duration each day: 11am - 5pm daily, Tues 21- Sun 26 March 2017, except for:

Saturday 25 March: performance will end at 3pm for:
artists' talks 25 March at 3-5pm by Chelsea Coon, Cecilia White and Nicola McLelland
 
9:50:45 is the time that two black holes collided in space on September 14, 2015. In her six day durational performance, Coon will create an installation of traces of the body's response to the space and will emphasize past, present and future time as well as focus on the body's interconnected relationship on an elemental level to manifestations in the universe
 
Coon's work explores beginnings and endings, life and death, the internal and external, and imminence of existence; collisions of space, phases, the simultaneous speeding up and slowing down of time, cycles, and the way in which the body on an elemental level is rooted to space. She has performed across North America, Europe and Asia, notably at: Tempting Failure (London, UK), CREATurE Live Art Festival (Kaunas, Lithuania), Dhaka Live Art Biennale (Dhaka, Bangladesh), PALS: Performance Art Links (Stockholm, Sweden), Water Tower Arts Festival (Sofia, Bulgaria), Experimental Room Festival (Barcelona, Spain), bridge (Bangkok, Thailand) and Art Space Tetra (Hakata, Japan) among others. She is the recipient of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant and has been a contributing writer for Big Red and Shiny. Coon lives and works in Los Angeles.
