I was fortunate enough to finally work with the talented conceptual video artist Wu Tsang on a piece titled “Full Body Quotation” last November at the New Museum for Performa 2011.
The piece was filmed in 1 take on a 12min, 16mm reel (talk about gettin’ your performance game on point!). “Full Body Quotation” is currently being exhibited as part of the New Museum’s Triennial: The Ungovernables.
Here is a bit of information about the exhibition from the New Museum’s site.
“The 2012 New Museum Triennial will feature thirty-four artists, artist groups, and temporary collectives—totaling over fifty participants—born between the mid-1970s and mid-1980s, many of whom have never before exhibited in the US.
The exhibition title, “The Ungovernables,” takes its inspiration from the concept of “ungovernability” and its transformation from a pejorative term used to describe unruly “natives” to a strategy of civil disobedience and self-determination. “The Ungovernables” is meant to suggest both anarchic and organized resistance and a dark humor about the limitations and potentials of this generation.
“The Ungovernables” is an exhibition about the urgencies of a generation who came of age after the independence and revolutionary movements of the 1960s and 1970s. Through both materials and form, works included in “The Ungovernables” explore impermanence and an engagement with the present and future. Many of the works are provisional, site-specific, and performative reflecting an attitude of possibility and resourcefulness.”
