In response to Danse dan la neiges, Wren constructs an homage to Francois Sullivan by creating a 10-foot high burlap dress. Incorporating Sullivan’s visual language, the pattern on the bodice of the dress is taken from Sullivan’s dance notations, and the capacious skirt with images of Mont-Saint-Hilaire. The burlap is a material that Sullivan has often used and painted upon to create costumes for her performances. Wren references both the internal and external body, directly addressing the visceral aspects of Sullivan’s work in relation to her internal landscape.
