The Station at Whitebox Art Center, December 2014
By Miriam Parker & Jo Wood-Brown (InnerCity Projects)

“The Station” is the latest revelatory collaboration between artist Jo Wood-Brown and dancer Miriam Parker…Time advances and then seems to retreat as overlapping images shed fractured light on walls and audience, thereby alchemically merging art and viewer…an embodied artistic experience that bravely celebrates the pleasures of intuition and partnership; it opens a new field of synergistic discovery for the viewer and lover of art.”
-Adrienne Baxter Bell

“The space was multiple - on the ground, above our heads, behind and in front of us, or through the transparent parts of the suspended structures. The movement passing through it revealed new spaces…This complexity made the work hypnotic, drawing the attention always to a new place.”
-Fiona Templeton
