Be forever dead in Eurydice, and climb back singing.
Climb praising as you return to connection.
Here among the disappearing, in the realm of the transient,
be a ringing glass that shatters as it rings.
-From The Sonnets to Orpheus (Part II XIII), Rainer Maria Rilke -
Doppelgänger Projects is pleased to present, in collaboration with Leah Guadagnoli, James Martin, and Bethany Tabor, Eurydice. Featuring artists Eryka Dellenbach, Katherine Finkelstein, Alison Kudlow, Brett Sroka, and Alex Wolkowicz, Eurydice will feature a weekend of programmed art installation, viewings, and performance upstate in Hillsdale, NY.
“Silent as the grave” - an aphorism used to permeate an imagined scene with quiet solitude and the soft ground beneath our feet. Those who repose below the surface are now on the other side of time, slowly moving backwards towards atomic distillation from whence they came. There is purpose in returning to the depths of organic primordiality, a cyclical homecoming to the river of oblivion.
Eurydice, traversing lightly between the stones of a cloistered forest cemetery in Hillsdale, NY, acts as a gentle birdsong, quavering through the din of seclusion, calling to those who came and left before us. Placing objects, projecting light and sound, reading words in eulogy, and using figures and forms to honor and recognize those both present and passed, venerating the layers of deep time and memory we sink into, reaching out beyond the veil to a profound articulation of peace.
