About Brian Vu: lung tone_mirror print_:
For his LAB:MFA project, Brian Vu will present lung tone_ mirror print_, a site-specific installation for our project gallery. Currently enrolled in Cranbrook Academy of Art, Brian Vu’s practice combines an interdisciplinary approach rooted in formalist approaches to contemporary dance, ceramics, and photography. The work is the first time the artist has merged his ceramic and performance practices together and the second in the artist’s lung tone_ series.
For his exhibition, the artist will create an installation of intricately placed mirrors and other elements that will act as a site for dance interventions that he will choreograph, employing structured and repetitive improvisation in his movements. During these performances, he will slather unfired porcelain clay throughout the space as an act of performative mark-making. The remnants of the unfired clay will act as a semi-permanent trace of his ephemeral performances, which will be on view through the duration of the exhibition.
