Performance Study (Falling 4 U), 2012. Digital C-prints; 44 inches x 14 inches (matted & framed)

Performance Study (Falling 4 U) corresponds to the performance-for-video piece Performance Study (I’ve Been Looking For Your Touch). The work was initially created as a personal examination of form while training in pole dance for Post-Paradise (Black Lodge Sweat). While the images initially served a pragmatic purpose, Brewer later created animated GIFs and other sequenced print editions of the images, evoking the photographic motion studies of Muybridge while contemporizing ongoing studies of gender and sexual expression.
