Katya Grokhovsky: Between Earth and Sky
The California Studio
Exploring the relationship of memory to body, materials, and place, as well as desire for harmony, peace, joy and humanity, “Between Earth and Sky” presents a site-specific mixed media live performance. A celebratory walking procession begins at the UC Davis Art Building and arrives at the Manetti Shrem Museum of Art Plaza, where the artist and some of her students perform a ceremonial game with objects created during Grokhovsky’s time at UC Davis as Visiting Professor in The California Studio: Manetti Shrem Artist Residencies. Between Earth and Sky concludes in a staged tableau and a formation of a return procession.
