A Day in Paradise Artist Projects

Posted on: October 8th, 2015

Saturday, October 24, 2015 from 12 p.m.–10 p.m. (Various times for each project)
Locations: Throughout Portland

Fallen Fruit of Portland will curate eight Oregon-based artists’ projects for A Day in Paradise. Each of these projects speak to Fallen Fruit of Portland’s themes in work that varies in media and materials. Confirmed artists and their bios are below.

 

Natalie Ball, Chiloquin: “War Hoop Flash Mob”
2 p.m. at Portland Art Museum

Natalie will facilitate War Hooping as used in battle by Native Americans across the country. Also known as a battle cry, Lii-Lii is a vocal projection used for intimidation, celebration, and energy charge. Women use Lii-Lii which is a tongue/vocal projection that is LOUD! They still do them today. Natalie will bring people from her tribe to do Lii-Lii, but everyone in the attendance will be invited to participate with them.

 

Bruce Conkle:  “Paradise Lost.”
6 p.m.–8 p.m. RACC building (411 NW Park Avenue)

Bruce Conkle has created apple inspired drawings from history, mythology, and pop culture. He will electronically and astrally project these images outdoors on a large wall along the Park Blocks and invite audience members to make images for projection. 

 

Bill Cravis, Bend: “A Monument for Bicyclists”
Noon–4 p.m. at South Park Blocks by the equestrian statue of Theodore Roosevelt across from Portland Art Museum

Portland bicyclists become temporary “living statues” in the South Parks neighborhood, alongside the equestrian statue of Theodore Roosevelt. A small replica of the concrete plinth supporting the Roosevelt statue will be placed near to the original. Bicyclists will be invited to become temporary “living statues” atop the miniature plinth, which will be photographed. These urban bicyclists will be displayed as today’s heroes – contemporary mavericks who play an active role in reducing the threat of global climate change. Photos will be placed online so that participants can download them.

 

Tahni Holt, Portland: “apples & pomegranates”
1 p.m. & 3 p.m. at Portland Art Museum

Building on the mythological idea of Eve eating the apple in the Garden of Eden, this is a solo dance performance that walks the fault line between rejected female stereotypes and embodied expression, wrestling with first impressions, assumptions and associations, motherhood, sensationalism, emotionality, sexuality, an image/time-bound body, and the body in the present moment.

  

Aaron Lish, Bend: “Sweet Nothings and Other Stories.”
Noon–5 p.m. at the Willamette Riverfront trail on SW Ankeny (near sewer pump station)

To celebrate the Willamette River, the public is invited to share stories, poetry, songs, etc. with the River as receiver / audience. There will be an installation at the Riverwalk overlook just south of the Saturday Market that will conduct your voices down to the water. The site is right near the Bill Naito Legacy Fountain, which memorializes the names of those who helped make Portland what it is today. But the Willamette River is not on that list of names. “Sweet Nothings and Other Stories” has been created to celebrate the River in a new and different way, where your sharing is a form of gift to the River.

 

Jess Perlitz, Portland: “Rock moving rocks”
11 a.m.–4 p.m. along the Eastbank Esplanade, over Tillikum Crossing, and ending at Portland Art Museum

For a day, the artist will be a rock and will move other rocks, engaging with the surrounding world. Inspired by landscape and landscaping, landmarks and monuments, natural disaster and our never-ending attempts for control, this piece will be an action that unfolds over the course of 5 hours. The rock will have arms and legs available so that it may move other similar objects, rest, and engage with people as needed. The rock does not talk. But it does try to communicate through music, action, and presence.

 

DeAngelo Raines, Portland: “The Right Hand of Fellowship”
Noon–4 p.m. in the South Park Blocks near Lincoln Statue

With the belief that barriers to identification can be overcome, DeAngelo Raines proposes a performative social engagement installation to exhibit multiple handshakes from seven different archetypes of the adult African-American male.
