Balloons, bodies and steel rings, a Bauhaus Ballet for Dublin city, Object Piggy re-figures aerial dance as a fetish for hardware; a circus-sculpture; a looking-object; ein schauobjekt.
A woman totters in pink trotters entangled in balloon ropes, she spins a-top a ribbon strand and you are overcome with lust for laser-play! A scientific physical phenomenon, all surgical masks and marbles, and the desire to swing in steel… Visual textures that hit you right in the third eye (the one between the legs) with a visceral, vocal, musical display and a question: “is it ok if it’s not ok?”
Object Piggy is a ‘dynamic sculpture’ by Emily Aoibheann and collaborators.
