Mnemonic - Performance by Katrina Chamberlin
October 25 - October 26, 2012
The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston’s current exhibition, “Something Along Those Lines,” features modern and contemporary artists whose works draw on performative, sculptural and conceptual engagements with the line, including Gego, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Sol LeWitt and more.
Delving further into this interdisciplinary dialogue, SMFA is hosting a two-day tattoo performance, Mnemonic, by Brooklyn-based artist Katrina Chamberlin on October 25 + 26. Visitors will have the opportunity to receive a permanent tattoo of a small blue dot on a location of their choice. The resulting identical, permanent marks—shared by a group of otherwise disconnected individuals—form an invisible network of interconnected points. Mnemonic functions as a performative response to LeWitt's Wall Drawing #118: Fifty random points all connected by straight lines.
