Diane Christiansen and Jeanne Dunning, "Birth Death Breath," installation detail, 2018

Continuing through June 10, 2018

It is impossible not to smile when visiting Diane Christiansen and Jeanne Dunning's imaginative musical installation. “Birth Death Breath” is an original opera performed by an array of customized inflatable lawn figures that oscillate, sway inflate and deflate throughout the opera's duration.

The inflatables range from store-bought figures like snowmen, turkeys, reindeer or hunters dressed in camouflage, to custom hybrids that reference the idea of "other." As we cross over wooden bridges following the libretto around the space, we are lead on a journey about identity, life, death and existence as performed by a playfully inventive menagerie.
