The collaborative performances between Rae Goodwin and Thomas Albrecht explore the challenge of individuals in relationship, the complexities of language shared, and the intimacy and distance between bodies in space. The performance for Amos Eno Gallery in Brooklyn continues this line of questioning in a durational action that investigates the weight of experience, and the demands of personal histories on the body and mind.
Thomas Albrecht works include wall drawings that record passages of time through accumulations of mark; paintings that negotiate the remnants of human agency without picturing actual figures; and performances on city sidewalks that explore ritual and language in public spaces. Albrecht is an assistant professor of art at the State University of New York at New Paltz. He served as the Menil Scholar at the Yale Institute of Sacred Music and was selected as a Faculty Fellow for the Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities. Albrecht received his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design, a Master of Arts in Religion at Yale, and his MFA from the University of Washington in Seattle.
