(New York, NY — June 1, 2019) — Forty Five Ten is pleased to debut Andrea Bergart’s video artwork, Dribble, for Curyatid, an ongoing video art series commissioned for the art and fashion brand’s first New York flagship. The artwork is on view exclusively on the first floor of Hudson Yards near the northeast entrance.
Collaging painting, landscape, and animation, as well as her friends from Downtown Girls Basketball, Bergart creates a virtual world that combines femininity and strength with the powerful forces of nature. Women with varying levels of skill and humor dribble and dance while natural landscapes and artist-painted images serve as alternating backdrops. The painted images often become animated, suggesting a direct relationship between athletic movement and the movement captured in painting. The cast and crew of Dribble includes cinematographer and editor Maddy Talias, animator Marlene Marmolejos, hair and makeup artist Sidnee Omphroy, and talent Andrea Bergart, Liz Beecroft, Elle Clay, Arielle de Saint Phalle, Tiarra Dickens, Shannon Hui, Naomi Iguchi, Aria McManus, Valentina Padilla, Cecilia Salama, and Gaby Serrano.
