Gunnhildur Hauksdóttir: Exhibition Borderline Human – Milk River Valley launches Terminal (TXL) Exhibitions on view through December 15, 2018
“Borderline Human” questions the set of the shifting values and definitions behind the term "human". For the opening Gunnhildur will lead a performance reacting to the vervet monkey calls. Apart from the audio and studies of the monkeys the installation includes a jungle gym with swings, monkey bars and hanging ropes. The internationally renowned contemporary dancer Saga Sigurðardóttir will physically engage with the installation with acts of borderline human movements.
Sound arranged in collaboration with Jón Rafn Hjálmarson and the Vervet Underground.
Gunnhildur’s research was made possible by the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery, the Level: 2 Lichen Lab and by the Barrett-Henzi Lab.
