ELEVEN HEAVY THINGS
JULY 23–OCTOBER 23, 2011
MOCA - PACIFIC DESIGN CENTER
RECEPTION FOR THE ARTIST
SATURDAY JULY 23 6–8p
In conjunction with her new feature length film THE FUTURE , polymath, artist, filmmaker, and writer MIRANDA JULY brings ELEVEN HEAVY THINGS, a series of interactive sculptures, to the PACIFIC DESIGN CENTER lawn. The pieces invite to mount inscribed pedestals, stand beneath elaborate headdresses, and insert their limbs into holes. A work that begins as sculpture metamorphoses into countless performances, only complete when participants photograph their interactions and share them. Through collaborative and dissemination, the audience shifts and the viewer becomes the subject of the work.
______________________________________________________Also... Miranda July will be @ CINEFAMILY on 7.26. @ 8p -
For their very first Show & Tell, CINEFAMILY has chosen filmmaker/author/performance artist/all-around fascinating figure Miranda July — someone whose creativity, mystery and unique mind is present in all facets of her art. Miranda’s sense of humor and her singular way of looking at the world makes her just the kind of person Cinefamily chose to rummage through the closets of, in order to dig up her curios, memories and influences. Instead of going to her living room, Cinefamily is inviting her to theirs , so that she can cozy up and tell them what her past few summer vacations were like…and maybe the other seasons as well.
