PROJECTS > FINDING AND FORGETTING
“Finding and Forgetting” investigates the gesture of dance as a symbol of persistence and resilience amidst the current economic downturn and global social upheaval. Inspired by dance marathons of the 1920s and 1930s, Olujimi has created two platforms for a pair of separated partners, who nonetheless continue their dance together. The wood sculpture was designed in conversation with the enduring architecture of the Cyclone roller coaster, constructed in 1927. "Finding and Forgetting” fragments and exhausts the body as the performers precariously oscillate between elevation and devastation.
