New video: Pat Passlof Triptych

Three spoken-word pieces originally created as part of Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center’s “Question Everything” exhibition. They are performed here in collaboration with live painter Blais Bellenoit. Music by Blais Bellenoit, filming by Scott Varn, audio engineering by Dave Hamilton, spoken word by Alli Marshall.

The poems celebrate the life and work of Black Mountain College alumna Pat Passlof, an abstract artist who lived until 2011. The first two poems take their titles from articles written about Pat; the third is an ekphrastic poem inspired by Rodin’s “The Centuaress” sculpture, which ties in thematically to Pat’s many images of horses and her feminist life.
