April 30 2009 – June 30 2009
ParaPractice + CarloMaria Ciampoli (LaN) with Biba Bell
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.
JAMES COLEMAN (ParaPractice) + CARLO MARIA CIAMPOLI (LaN), 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.
