THE SIX FOOT PLATFORM: THE PITTING: SARAH K WILLIAMS THE SIX FOOT PLATFORM AN EXPERIMENTAL ART + PERFORMANCE PROGRAM PRESENTING BROOKLYN-BASED ARTISTS ON A 6X6 PLATFORM ON WASHINGTON STREET (@WATER ST.) –BROOKLYN'S MOST PHOTOGRAPHED BLOCK. SUMMER SATURDAYS | 1-8PM --------------------------------------------------------- SEPTEMBER 3 THE PITTING BY SARAH K WILLIAMS --------------------------------------------------------- "The Pitting" is a sculptural performance involving the slicing and sampling of a collection of invented fruits. The pitting process varies including: cracking, unscrewing, boiling, tearing, and mashing. Each fruit, constructed out of an array of edible ingredients, is strikingly different in size, scent, and texture, while the pits are all identical. Samples of the fruits will be offered throughout the afternoon, concluding with an Orange Mediation at dusk. --------------------------------------------------------- Sarah K Williams is a multi-disciplinary artist working between sculpture and performance, exploring the musicality of instruction and the theatricality of the mundane. Recent fellowships and residencies include the NARS Satellite Program, Studios at MASS MoCA, AIM at the Bronx Museum, Vermont Studio Center, the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program, and a Fulbright Fellowship to study experimental music in Berlin. She is also the founder/co-director of Sprechgesang Institute, a project-based collaborative for artists working in an in-between language of two or more disciplines. In 2020 she launched the sculptural snack service Aesthetically Complex Pies. --------------------------------------------------------- PRESENTED BY THE DUMBO IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT IN PARTNERSHIP WITH BROOKLYN ARTS COUNCIL.
