Shop n Save JOAN

Jill Sigman
January 11–26, 2010
Studio 2

Since 2009, Jill Sigman has worked on The Hut Project, a series of site-specific huts made from found and re-purposed materials. Each hut is simultaneously a structure, a sculpture, and an emergency preparedness kit in which themes of sustainability, shelter, real estate, and apocalypse intersect. Each hut acts as catalyst for activities, such as performance, video, collaboration, and community dialogue. At EMPAC, Sigman collaborated with the JOAN group on a performance installation in the Hut series, that incorporated movement, music, and video into the creation of a small hut from found material.

Jill Sigman/thinkdance creates conceptual performance that grows out of physical experience at the intersection of dance, theater, and visual installation. Sigman’s work transforms simple actions into complex statements about self, society, and human experience.
