Hammer Project, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA May 6-August 6, 2017
Part 1 of a large-scale project cycle includes an exhibition and performance related to research on the conditions of copper usage in late capitalism and the irreconcilable contemporary relationship between bodies, labor, resources, and art. With humor, pathos, and pleasure, the installation includes catalytic instruments and objects that interrelate the body’s function and relationship to materials and representation. It also features a video of an absurdist ensemble performance work based on the production process of copper. A hand-woven rug anchors the project, its composition based on perspectival issues of 3D imaging.
This project is supported by Creative Capital and UrbanGlass.
