"Anne Wilson: Portable City, Notations, Wind-Up"
January 21 - March 1, 2008
Rhona Hoffman Gallery
118 N. Peoria Street
Chicago, IL



"Nine participants accomplished the performed labor or 'walking the warp,' converting the front gallery into a six-day performance of walking, counting, rolling, and winding. The rhythmic act of building a 40-yard weaving warp on a 17' x 7' frame was viewed from the Peoria Street sidewalk and resulted in a sculptural presence within the gallery."

"The performance warping team included Sara Rabinowitz, Carla Duarte, Annie Egleson, Jongock Kim, Rosemary Lee, Christy Matson, Rachel Moore, Rana Siegel, and Anne Wilson. Jeroen Nelemans (DVD) and Surabhi Ghosh (still photos) documented the project. Sara Rabinowitz designed the gallery publication and Ghosh assisted with publication guidance. Mike Slattery fabricated the stainless steel frame; Kristin Frieman contributed clothing from her line RedShift; Judith Leemann, Mark Jeffery, and Fred Nagelbach offered their wisdom; and Joan Livingstone generously gave her studio for practice sessions."
