Opening Thursday, April 30, 2009 at 6-9 PM
Live Architecture Network with Biba Bell
Organized by Mitch McEwen and Movement Research Festival 2009: ROLL CALL
SUPERFRONT architecture gallery and project space is proud to present ARCHEOGRAPHY IV, a performative installation produced in conjunction with Movement Research Festival 2009: ROLL CALL. The exhibition features new works of architecture and performance conceived collaboratively by Live Architecture Network and choreographer Biba Bell.
This multi-disciplinary exhibition is on view from April 30, 2009 through June 30, 2009. Live performance will take place in the installation Thursday, April 30th at 7PM
JAMES COLEMAN & CARLO MARIA CIAMPOLI of Live Architecture Network, a collective of young architects that works between Barcelona, Boulder, and Brooklyn, have designed an installation specifically for this one evening of performance. Constructed of 1,000 feet of elastic and fixed to the gallery walls through digitally fabricated tracks, the installation creates undulating planes for observation and movement. Both the audience and choreographer, Biba Bell of URISOV, will navigate this soft-scape terrain. The installation will remain on view at the gallery, following the one evening of performance, through June 30, 2009.
ARCHEOGRAPHY IV is the fourth and final installation of the ARCHEOGRAPHY PROJECT series at SUPERFRONT, which has presented the combined work of architects and choreographers since October 2008. The investigation presumes that precepts of movement may act authoritatively upon architecture and, conversely, that architecture may operate within a logic of performance.
