Madeline Hollander’s site-specific work, 365, is a durational performance created for the exhibition "The Derivatives," a project by Alan Segal & Larisa Zmud, and is composed of movement sequences that connect cement mixing trucks, performers, and pedestrians.
Each cement truck rotates exactly 365 times, representing 1 earth year, while six performers repeat 12-step movement sequences, representing the months of the year, that draw choreographic inspiration from both cultural and mechanized modes of counting, measuring and keeping time.
In this piece, the sidewalk both unites and inverts the roles of the performers and the pedestrians. Concrete, the most widely used material in the world, becomes the stage. The two essential elements in concrete, sand and water, are now considered endangered natural resources.
365 is performed by Julián Dubié, Flor sanchez Elia, Madeline Hollander, Mauricio Zmud, Tomás Deías Spreng, Fenomix and NOREP.
Special thanks to Fenomix, NOREP, Dubié and Álamos for their participation and generous support.
