Shantell Martin worked with NYCB dancers Lauren Lovette and Daniel Applebaum to create a visual counterpiece and debut for her upcoming NYCB takeover.
In preparation for the exhibition, Martin was inspired by interviews with the NYC ballet dancers and worked onsite while observing rehearsals, allowing the experience of the dancers to inspire and guide her pen. The result is an immersive installation which transforms the public spaces of the David H. Koch Theater into a world of reflection. Through it all, Martin hopes to initiate a dialogue with her audience by posing a simple question: Who Are You?
