On an unusually brisk night in Miami’s Design District, Locust Projects kicked off its Miami Art Week events with Liminal, an outdoor performance by Miami-based artist Mette Tommerup presented in conjunction with her exhibition Made by Dusk. Viewed from the parking lot behind Locust Projects starting at twilight, the performance included video projections on a massive canvas streaming down from the roof covering a portion of the parking lot upon which were placed blocks of dry ice. Attendees were invited to make a symbolic offering to the Nordic Goddess Freya by dripping honey from small jars onto the individual cubes, creating a hazy fog through sublimation that captured the light, enveloping all in a warm, golden glow. The artist appeared from her position on the roof at various intervals during the four 30-minute performances, at times laboriously pulling and lowering massive canvases and, at others, casting a stream of golden flowers across the scene below. Ambient ethereal sounds by artist-composer, Dave Brieske, filled the night air as attendees’ honeyed wishes and desires were cast heavenward.
“Visitors can make a symbolic offering to the Nordic Goddess Freya at dusk and contemplate their inner wishes and desires”. - Mette Tommerup
The performance took place Tuesday, December 1, from 6-8pm with appointments available for activations every 30 minutes. Liminal is free and open to the public on a socially-distanced basis, maximum capacity of 25 guests at a time. Masks required.
