LACE presents A Composite Field, a new work by Yann Novak and Taisha Paggett at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture’s Mackey Garage Top (at the R. M. Schindler designed Pearl M. Mackey Apartments) in the Mid-Wilshire area of Los Angeles (1137 South Cochran Avenue). For the eighth and final installment of his one-year program, Performance Art Curator in Residence Dino Dinco pairs up sound and installation artist Yann Novak with choreographer and dancer Taisha Paggett for the premiere of this site-specific work.
Dinco proposed this site to the artists out of the keen awareness of space and architecture – material, conceptual, corporeal – that informs and influences their work. Novak and Paggett take a sculptural approach to both sound and movement in their respective constructions of the spectating experience. Novak has made field recordings that document the aural presence of the Mackey Garage Top, which will inform how he and Paggett construct their performance. These recordings will be digitally altered to emphasize the unique characteristics of the space itself. Drawing on her ongoing interest in the cultural process of vision, seeing and being seen, Paggett will construct and perform a chain of actions inspired by the layered organic and artificial elements of both the space and the sound score.
Seating is limited and limited number of advanced tickets are available. There will be three scheduled seatings on the hour at 7, 8, and 9 PM.
The premiere of A Composite Field concludes Dinco’s yearlong tenure as LACE’s first Performance Art Curator in Residence. Over the last 12 months, Dino has assembled a daring ensemble of performers from Los Angeles and beyond including Mecca Vazie Andrews, Mariel Carranza, Jorge Rodolfo De Hoyos (San Francisco), Brian Getnick with Claire Cronin and Corey Fogel, Tameka Norris (currently at Yale), Dawn ...read more >
