A roaming installation made for 90 acres of Central Park’s North Woods. Through a series of choreographic mappings and systemic experimentation, Lauri is working with ideas about how we associate with one another and have intensely private moments in public spaces. Lauri sets out from a central site that recognizes what is primitive and mysterious in ourselves, and the critical role of vulnerability. Happening daily over six hours, And all directions I come to you is envisioned as a constant flow of intuition and play. The installation’s principal is movement, and with this work, Lauri aims for experience to be an anchor for thinking, by letting time happen to offer emancipatory moments and a gathering among strangers who are or are not community. Non-hierarchal, haptic and tactile, Lauri crafts the work to grow amidst things and with things.
In tandem with the six-week exhibition, Lauri and glo engaged in Making Days, Movement Choirs, and Farming across Harlem, Queens, and Brooklyn, with Brooklyn Queens Land Trust and Global Kidz.
