Would you willingly enter an artwork designed to test your fear of dark, unstable spaces and our limits of trust?
Hold is part reality-TV ordeal, and part extreme performance art engagement. A highly immersive, multi-sensory architectural experience, Hold draws participants into a dynamic relationship between play, interaction and phobic space as they push through an assortment of physical and psychological barriers.
Hold creates an uncanny yet intimate one-on-one encounter between the audience member and an unseen performer. Crucially, it also demands unusual levels of physical and psychological interaction as you navigate a spatially complex and disorientating pathway – all while being suspended above ground by air!
Leap into the shifting, fluid divide between fear and pleasure, with New Zealand-based artist David Cross’s unsettling and intriguing performance–installation, Hold.
