Touch Compass is proud to present Heidi Latsky’s ON DISPLAY at Auckland’s Big Day Out!
ON DISPLAY is a deconstructed art exhibit/fashion show and commentary on the body as spectacle and society's obsession with body image. It turns a cast of diverse and different bodies into a sculpture court where the performers are the sculptures. ON DISPLAY began as a simple human sculpture court and is now a global movement, a growing portfolio of works that explore and demonstrate inclusion through art.
There will two installations of ON DISPLAY @ 2pm and 4pm (each lasting for about an hour).
Touch Compass present an interactive performance between visual artist, Yung Chen, and dancer, Julie Van Renen. Working together to create a unique performance piece that combines Yung’s ability to express his feelings and emotions through his work with his passion for performance. The result is an interdisciplinary story that shows the world through Yung’s lens as he creates a piece of art that is interpreted through Julie’s movement.
