The Master of Form
Brendan Fernandez
and Norman Kelley
The Whitney Biennial 2019
This live performance and series of sculptural pieces explore themes of mastery and discipline within the culture of Ballet. By foregrounding labor and physical exertion in both presence and absence, Fernandez attempts to queer the traditionally illusionistic and hierarchically idealized spaces of Ballet.
Film made possible through The Graham Foundation Chicago.
