Informances are therapeutic participatory performances in which the artist creates a loose set of instructions that guide the participant through a direct and personal experience of her artwork. Each Informance is a cauldron where inner and outer feelings are transformed into connectedness to self, to object and to others. The Informances at Ladies’ Room, were inspired by the ultraviolet light of the Human Luminescence and by the Brazilian Neo–concrete artists of the 1950s and ’60s who rejected pure forms of geometric abstraction for more sensual methods of art making.
