Future Holiday, Rachel Debuque, Washington, DC
Digital video featuring a set created from found fabric, paint, and wooden clouds.
Working with a team of local dancers and a choreographer, Debuque created a surreal performance and video based on Elsewhere’s cleaning rituals. These rituals involve picking through the dustpans for fragments of collection to preserve the materials for future use at the museum. The performance set elements and the movements of the dancers are based on things found and seen at the museum that have been transformed into a supersaturated world of pigment and pattern.
