Hanne Tierney

The Jerome Foundation, on a very limited basis, makes grants to established mid-career artists if they are facing particularly steep challenges and are at critical junctures in their work and careers. A grant of $15,000 was awarded to FIVE MYLES, Brooklyn, New York, to support the creation and production of a new work by puppet theater artist HANNE TIERNEY. Tierneys project represents new artistic territory for her, an investigation into changing the relationship between audience and performance, to let the audience experience a sense of complete participation in the action on stage. Shell change this relationship through the unorthodox use of video projection. Her new work titled How Wang-Fo Was Saved, based on an old Chinese legend and a story by Margaret Yourcenar, tells the story of the triumph of art over life.
