The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center in downtown Asheville presents in the arm of flowers an interdiscplinary performance by Megan Ransmeier and Julia Rich. Informed by a three-year correspondence, in the arm of flowers, is a performance by two multidisciplinary artists: Asheville-based Megan Ransmeier and New Mexico-based Julia Rich.
To set the stage: Two women inhabit a mythic landscape of sand and ice, inviting inclusive spectrums of connection through voice, body, and object relations.
Shame, cultivated through apprehended mistakes, unearths strange apples, silver and wooden, stored for eons in hidden craters of the planet. Once our gaze meets these fruits, they remind us of our choice. Some magnetic, some porous, temporarily forgotten so that they would remain safe.
These apples belong with the two women.
In the arm of flowers is presented in conjunction with the exhibition SOMETHING ELSE ENTIRELY: Ray Johnson, Dick Higgins and the making of THE PAPER SNAKE on view until August 22, 2015.
The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center (BMCM+AC) preserves and continues the unique legacy of educational and artistic innovation of Black Mountain College. We achieve our mission through collection, conservation, and educational activities including exhibitions, publications, and public programs.
