The Waterfront Museum is excited to present an exhibition and multimedia performance piece titled "Embodiment" June 4 at 2 & 4pm aboard the Waterfront Museum's historic barge in Brooklyn, New York. The event is free of charge. In her paintings and performance art, French-born, Brooklyn-based Stephanie Corne transforms the traditional canvas workspace into a multi-dimensional stage, painting her subjects in real time. The show offers a provocative and intimate performance, the painting of dancers "into" beautiful large-size canvases.
"Embodiment" will involve painting of the artist's subjects with music performed and composed by Birgid Volens. "I paint on the skin on the person, exposing the person's feelings inside on the surface of the skin, which is the oldest parchment in the history of mankind." Corne is one of the artists at the forefront of an industry shift away from the traditional gallery setting and towards the growing use of new media and technology in conjunction with formal technique and mediums like painting. Corne's experimentation and hybrid expression has attracted interest worldwide. She will have a solo show in July in Pondicherry, India as well as in a group exhibition and public event at Chateau de Villequiers in France at the end of September 2016.
