Panoramic Study

In August of 1967 the artist Tadeusz Kantor organized a series of Panoramic Sea Happenings on the beach of the Baltic Coast in Poland. These happenings involved motorcyclists racing in the sand to create a fugue, a conductor orchestrating the waves and a live staging of Gericault’s painting The Raft of Medusa. Produced by NYPACPanoramic Orange Study (2013) built on these motifs while incorporating an exploration of the color orange in the context of Fire Island where the piece was performed.
