Black Walnut Grove movements by Cecilie Jordheim: rout/e post: https://t.co/rX35492cxl @cbjordheim @derekbeaulieu— Chris Turnbull (@ChrisCturnbul) April 28, 2017
Jordheim’s hand-drawn pieces came in the form of ten, singular, beige notecards of slightly thicker stock, labelled “black walnut grove 1 movement” and onward, to 10. Jordheim’s scores, articulated as movements, fit perfectly into a site that is mostly abandoned by humans but is an access point by air, land and water for multiples of other species. While much of the focus could be on the physical movements and placings within this space, its abandoned nature, combined with the careful initial planning and placement of the nut grove between cedar hedges, makes it a conceptual and real auditorium for the variations of sound that can be heard here throughout the year. Conversation is constant and unwritten.
Jordheim is a versatile artist with a concrete thoughtfulness behind her work.
