On the occasion of ས་གཞི་སྔོན་པོ་འགྱུར། (The Earth Turned Green), please join us for Grey Hey, A performance whereabouts a walk by Ali Van. The performance will be held on SI’s rooftop.

The artist writes: “Green held syringes. Unconscious sublimation. Subject object generation. Lift. Suspect varietal. Knot strengths. Life. Import truth. Familial pliés. Moving value in light of wind. An interspecific note. Waits. One oblique confession. Profession. Reflective intention. Signs. An arrival to mark another movement of colours, hand to hand. Veil long discretions. North winding decisive recall. On sudden shifts. A quiet gesture. Trees. Climax calling care to free a way engendered. Freed on foot over flowered expressions. Organ invoicing world to site mutual attention. Wand safe. Saving. A culmination of tender pathways.  Hail, rail, helloed.”
