UNFOLDING is an art installation by artist, Jenifer Padilla. This show is a site-specific piece in the 1056 Gallery at Redux. Padilla highlights specific pieces from previous live performances with Unbound Ballet Project and creates new ones for the gallery show. With this recent work, she focused on the act of painting becoming a dance itself —the paint and canvas taking on their own performance. The mark left captures a moment in time when dance is typically a fleeting act. There is the gravity of the paint and the dancers’ movement, but what’s left from both actions of paint and dancers meeting is serendipitous; left to chance. We get to physically see the chance when both mediums meet together.
