Nathalie Brilliant: “Nucleus”

October 1, 2016 - October 31, 2016

ATA Window Gallery presents Nathalie Brilliant’s Nucleus
Opening Reception: Oct. 11, 6 – 9 PM

The ATA window presents, “Nucleus,” a show that comprises of one video piece. The video piece was created for My Home My Mission, a project that considers what it means to belong, and what a “home” is when the concept of home is challenged by the surging crisis of evictions in San Francisco. My Home My Mission delves into aspects of psychological trauma and identity that cause people to feel displaced. Nucleus explores the concept of the body as an initial site of belonging and feeling at home.

The performers depicted in the video have been working together for over a year now in considering a movement principle that Nathalie has called, a “moving meditation.” The “moving meditation,” is a way for the performers to connect with the body and mind through movement exploration and somatic play.
