Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen: The Present Doesn’t Exist in My Mind and the Future is Already Far Behind
at Performance Project @ University Settlement
A one-woman performance inspired by the writings of Valentine de Saint-Point and Mina Loy that reflects on lust, romanticized sexuality, and the subjugation of women. Collaborating with composers Pete Drungle and Brian Bender, motion graphic artist Brian Close, and costume designer Lise Klitten, Cuenca Rasmussen merges choreography, song, architecture and costume in a multi-media performance.
Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen (b. Manila, Philippines, 1970) works primarily in video and performance to explore notions of gender, national identity, and social relations. Her Danish-Filipino background often serves as a point of departure for work. She is a graduate of The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and a 2004 recipient of the Danish Art Council’s three-year grant. Her work has been presented both in the United States and internationally at institutions such as U-Turn Quadriennial, Copenhagen; Brooklyn Museum, New York; Malmö Kunst Museum, Sweden; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul, South Korea and Praxis: Art in Times of Uncertainty, Biennale of Contemporary Art, Thessaloniki.
