InnerCity is a site-specific project comprised of different components or typologies that include: paintings, video, installation and live performance. The project can be exhibited in parts.
InnerCity explores the state of being in-between destinations and how our mind and body can be present in two very different places at the same time.
Miriam Parker and Jo Wood-Brown access this phenomenon within the architecture of the urban environment combining visual, choreographic, film and sonic elements that overlap poetically and metaphorically to create a world between people's dreams.
InnerCity Projects was created in the collaborative dialogue between visual artist Wood-Brown and dancer Parker over a period of several years.
It is built on dialogues between the nature of the fixed or painted image and the time-based nature of movement and has led to the development of mixed media works: installation, film, and performance.
Parker and Wood-Brown are developing installations that use core materials from one or more cities and combine them into a new whole.
Much like the city, the installation is a fixed structure, while it is the pedestrians who activate the space navigating 'location-to-location'.
The installation is about the viewer's transformation as they experience the juxtaposition of realities.
Inner City Projects is developing installations between Berlin and New York, Texas and New York and is interested in working in collaboration with artists in more cities.
