Presented by Performance Space 122 in partnership with Ideal Glass Gallery at COIL 2016 with support from FuturePerfect
o’ death is a multidisciplinary performance installation that impossibly and playfully attempts to prove that death does not exist and everything we have ever loved is not enough. Built on a reflexive interaction between sound and movement, the performance comes alive amidst towering styrofoam sculptures and mechanical trees, giving sound a physical presence through movements, objects and lights.
Findlay//Sandsmark’s last NY appearance was as recent as December 2014 with biograph, last year was pretty//sh*tty. To give you a taste of their work as a company, view the New York Times’ T Mag feature with stunning images and hear the sounds of composer & sound designer Pettersen’s haunting compositions here via soundcloud.
