Performa 13 event: Object to be Destroyed


Date: Saturday, 23 of November of 2013 03h00
City: New-York
Local: Abrons Arts Center
Street: 466 Grand Street

Tonight and Saturday!

Another free Performa 13 event on Friday, November 22, 6-8 pm and repeated on Saturday, November 23, 5-9, at Abrons Arts Center, 466 Grand St., New York, NY. Featuring an art performance piece entitled, Object to be Destroyed, by Colombian artist and Professor, Pedro Gómez-Egaña: five performers, pendulums, and a grand piano (I'll be playing a piece by Henri Dutilleux). The short performances will repeat continuously during 6-8 pm Friday, and 5-9 pm Saturday.

Pedro Gómez-Egaña has created a ceremonial performance built around the careful process of placing two magnetized pendulums in balance. His Object to be Destroyed sets the audience, guided carefully by the performers, on a journey that brings together symbolic and historical time, mystical fantasies, the magical experience of science, and the point where bearing witness meets spectacle.
