When Time Becomes Form
Curated by Marina Abramovic

Artists Space is pleased to present the fourth installment of the durational performance series When Time Becomes Form curated by Marina Abramovic, featuring two separate performances occurring simultaneously within the galleries.

Daniel Mueller Friedrichsen: A Letter for the Girl Chewing Gum

The piece A Letter for the Girl Chewing Gum, presented at Artists Space, brings us closer to Daniel Mueller-Friedrichsen’s video, text-based works, and his focus on the narrative. His approach resolves the borders between performance-documentary and cinema, emphasizing this theme through repetition. The participants and the public audience have a sense of their own performance, while the characters in the film also appear live on stage. Unexpected relationships are created by the film and music, raising the question: is it a film, is it theater, an audition, or a concert? Audience members take part in the opening scene, an interpersonal display of relationships that center on love, loss, desire, obsession, and memories, all while simultaneously dealing directly with the concept of film-making itself. The movie will be shot and edited during the five days of the performance. More about the projects at:

Thursday, April 3, 6:30 p.m.

Critic and art historian Julian Myers will present audio and video recordings of so-called “riot shows,” rock concerts when the audience actively intervenes in the performance, forcing the band to end the show unexpectedly. The presentation will include disrupted performances by Suicide, Black Sabbath, Cabaret Voltaire, Morrissey, Public Image Ltd., and Guns 'N' Roses, and will incorporate brief descriptions of the circumstances and particularities of each event. Strange, funny, boring and scary in turns, these recordings allow us to perceive certain intensities and instabilities the heart of the rock concert, and perhaps in spectacular entertainment in general.
