June 9, 2019: TIDAL Participatory Beach Performance
We would love your participation in the epic construction and deconstruction of the sand staircase!
Please join us at low tide, to toil, dig deep and build big. Stay as the water rolls in and softens all our efforts. Please wear white and bring a digging object. This is open for your interpretation, be it a spoon, a shell, bucket or shovel, etc. Also remember a hat, sunscreen, water, and towel/blanket.
Adrienne Adar and Cara Levine both native Angelenos, are artists invested in drawing on our irrevocable human to earth relationship. Adar and Levine, plan to highlight both beauty and failure in their natural home turf, through an all-day construction of an elaborate, collaborative, sand structure, only to see it disappear before their eyes come high tide.
While the construction is paired with labor, dialogue, and shared action, the disappearance will be witnessed with joy and a sense of accomplishment. There is no reason to suffer the loss of what we make, as this ritual is here to highlight the grace in its ephemerality.
