The New Moon in October is “unpredictable and erratic, it will make people restless, impulsive, and even crazy.."
On October 27th Lucien Shapiro will lead a participatory performance at ARVIA during the New Moon, inviting you to observe and set free personal bounds from the past to move forward with fresh beginnings. On this evening, accompanying sounds will be in collaboration with local artist and sound healer Grace Oh.
This cycle began in the Southwest desert lands of Marfa, Texas where Lucien led a performance during the October Full Moon. To mark points of protection, he constructed "Dust Cages" from local and primarily organic materials, as well as his own costume made of dried Yucca pods and branches. These objects will travel with Lucien to Los Angeles where he will rework them into the ARVIA landscape, create new pieces and elemental implements of fire, water and seeds in preparation for the evening of the New Moon performance.

Lucien Shapiro holds space in the parameters of his art practice through the making of objects, performance and installation to embolden people to realize their own power and strength in healing themselves. Lucien lives and works everywhere.
