Chicago-based artist Cheryl Pope tells the back story of Up Against, a performance she presented on Miami Beach in late 2014. Pope used only her head to box down 700 transparent water-filled balloons that were suspended from the ceiling in a former auto body shop.
The context for Up Against was AUTO BODY, a four-day video and performance project that took place during Miami Art Week 2014. Here’s a video excerpt, courtesy Spinello Projects:
