Live: Liz Glynn
The Fear Index
Glynn creates sculpture and performance using epic historical narratives, cultural artifacts, and monumental architecture to explore the potential for change in the present tense. Her practice activates objects through performance, changing materials to trace shifts in cultural value, and embodying the rise and fall of empires through cycles of actions and object production.
Based on interviews with professionals in the financial sector, Glynn’s interactive performance explores volatility and risk. Dancers move in response to sales, data points and traffic at the fair, probing the commodification of uncertainty and the impulse to quantify human emotion. In partnership with Delfina Foundation.
