JON COTNER & ANDY FITCH

04/24/2010 7:00 pm

Sixty mornings of sixty-minute walks in Manhattan, documented in 60-sentence essays. 30 days of 45-minute public conversations, transcribed, also in New York. The fusion of these projects is presented in Jon Cotner and Andy Fitch's Ten Walks/Two Talks (Ugly Duckling Presse/Dossier), mapping 21st-century New York in a style inspired by the writing of Basho, and performed here tonight. "Like the propositions of Brainard, Schuyler, or Wittgenstein, Andy Fitch's declarations of ambulatory fact—of 'mere' observation—are barbed with genius: clever, defamiliarizing, cushioned by a hum of meditative stillness ... and when he starts talking with the profound Jon Cotner, a latter-day Plato, we remember that philosophical inquiries have every right to take root in daily curiosities." – Wayne Koestenbaum. Jon Cotner and Andy Fitch were most recently among the artists invited to participate in Tino Sehgal's conversational and choreographic installation at the Guggenheim.
