“Art In Motion” will present a special, one-night-only performance, titled “Fragmentina’s Motherland,”by Samantha CC, a videographer, curator and vocalist who uses mythological tropes to connect lived experience in a black woman’s body to the divine. “Fragmentina’s Motherland” tells the story of Fragmentina, an otherworldly and bewildered being, who wakes up on an unknown shore and must piece together her identity and the events that have led to her displacement.

Video art to be featured at “Art In Motion” will include “The Glacier Is the Center of the Universe,” a juxtaposition of nature and the female form by Sam Cannon, a New York City-based artist and director; “Daphne,” a modern interpretation of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, by digital animator Sean Capone; “Kiss Me” and “We are Watching You,” both by artist Indira Cesarine; and “Woman and Nature near Extinction,” the second part of a trilogy exploring the relationship between feminism and ecology by Iris Brosch.
