A Durational Performance with the Sea Community Day

Join Brookfield Place for a day of film screenings of Sarah Cameron Sunde’s durational performances along with community crafts and participatory walks centered around the video artworks, drawing awareness to water, time and rising sea levels. Two video works, 36.5 / Te Manukanukatanga ō Hoturoa, Aotearoa-New Zealand and 36.5 / Bay of All Saints, Salvador, Brazil, will play simultaneously in a four-channel installation outside on the waterfront from 8:08 am – 8:31 pm, a duration that relates to the timing and length of the full tidal cycle in Aotearoa on the day that work was created.  Sunde stands in a tidal bay for the full tidal cycle (12-13 hours) as water engulfs her body and then reveals it again.  Local organizations and residents participate by standing in the water with her and by marking each passing hour from the shore.

Join an all-ages Community Craft: Denim Seascape Creation (10 am – 1 pm & 3 – 6 pm). Inspired by Sunde’s durational performances in Aotearoa and Brazil, collaborate on an evolving oceanic landscape. Led by René Stewart-Pearce / MARZ ÁNAY, and mixed media visual artist Pamella Allen, using recycled/repurposed denim and cotton fabric.

Join Sunde for “human clock” walks during high-tide (10:08am), low-tide (4:08pm), and sunset/end of the cycle (8:08pm). Learn a 6 minute phrase marking the passing of the hours based on nautical hand signals.
