Through the Mirrors

“Through the Mirrors” is a poetic and musical evocation of the inevitability of time, inspired by W.H. Auden’s poem “As I Walked Out One Evening.” Snapshots from a woman’s life – from youth to old age – and from natural landscapes are framed and reflected in slowly spinning mirrors. At the center of it all, a solo pianist (Julien Brocal) plays music by Ravel and Mompou that, with the ebb and flow of its rubato, provides a musical narration to the woman’s story. Slow motion shots, superimposed images, and mirrored projections explore the raw beauty and unceasing flow of time and memory.

Notturno: Franz Schubert

Franz Schubert: Notturno in E-flat Major, Op. 148
Performed by Sasha Kazovsky (violin), Amit Even-Tov (cello), Jeffrey Kahane (piano)
Tippet Rise Art Center, the Domo, August 12, 2017

This extraordinary pastoral by Franz Schubert takes one astonishing melody and repeats it in various ways which increase its revelations, similar to the Claude Lelouch film, Viva la Vie, where every time you think you understand the film, it starts again at a higher level.
For Schubert the indolent gaslamp Hapsburg night repeated itself endlessly, the same summer evening in different voices. Classical music is just that: a pinwheel that is never the same, no matter how many times it spins; a “magic record” which tells different stories every time you put the needle down in the same place. An Aurora Borealis whose ions are constantly reinvented by the solar wind, magnetized plasma incited into sheets, curtains, waves, cascades, and rays by the solar storms we call sunspots. We are the observers whose presence changes the world, as if the night sky performs for us.

We hope everyone who comes to Tippet Rise will find that, like the magic record or the Northern Lights, the skies, the notes, are always the same, just in deepening and heightening magnetic shades.

Pioneer, Stephen Talasnik

Pioneer is a large-scale wooden sculpture constructed at Tippet Rise Art Center by artist Stephen Talasnik. Informed by Space Architecture of the early 60’s, it was engineered by Arup and crafted by Gunnstock Timber Frames using yellow cedar from the northwestern United States. The piece is influenced by traditions of 20th century visionary architecture. This documentary examines the sculpture’s journey from inspiration to design ― problem solving, fabrication and installation. In dialogue with the natural setting of a geological “bowl,” the artist examines the influence of exploration on his creative process.
