Katy McCormick
The World in a Folly Garden: Dancing 'Round the Ruins

May 4–June 3, 2006
WARC (Womens Art Resource Centre) Gallery
401 Richmond St W Ste 122

Le Désert de Retz, an 18th-century folly garden
located near
Paris, was built to resemble a collection of ruins,
with each
structure referencing an ancient civilization. Pairing
evocative
views of the site with historic dance notations,
McCormick
presents the Romantic garden as a choreographed
performance. Viewers are invited to promenade
through a
miniature world, where relationships of space and
time, past
and present, are interwoven as one goes through
the steps,
dancing ‘round the ruins.
