Javier Pérez: En Puntas (2013)

Video installation of variable measurements comprising:
Sculpture: pointe shoes, stainless steel knives
Video projection: HD blu-ray, with sound, screened on a wall
9’

A ballerina, whose pointe shoes are extended by a set of sharp kitchen knives, dances and twirls insistently until reaching exhaustion, fighting to maintain balance on the lid of a grand piano set on a stage.  The theatre with its red velvet warm lighting, resembles an oversized music box. The camera turns around the dancer revealing the opposite side of the room: an empty and painfully bare theatre.

The ballerina appears as an eerie figure expressing effort, sacrifice and pain in her strive for perfection. Both fragile and cruel. Initially shy and hesitant, her steps become more and more emphatic, menacing and not exempt of violence, scraping and cutting into the delicate surface of the piano with her sharp pointe shoes.

Through this work, Javier Perez investigates and reflects once again upon the human condition. Using a strongly metaphorical language rich in powerful symbolism, he reveals the weaknesses that become the boundaries between seemingly irreconcilable concepts such as: beauty and cruelty, fragility and violence, culture and nature or life and death.

She was incredibly talented and beautiful,” says Adam Pascal, who lived around the corner from Menzel, was a year ahead of her at Syosset High and, in the wildest of career convergences, ended up her co-star of “Rent.” What were the odds of that pair of voices emerging from the same suburban neighborhood?

“He was really popular, he got all the girls and smoked at the back of the bus,” recalls Menzel.

“By painting me as cool, she’s glamorizing the reality,” Pascal, speaking by phone from California, replies, laughing. All through NYU, she dated a friend of Pascal’s, and when she got the part in “Rent,” the friend called Pascal to say they were looking for a guy with a rock voice. “I thought, ‘Idina’s in it. What’s the worst that can happen?’
