4th BODY
Museum of Contemporary Art Georgia
2014

A hybrid form that experiments with new ways of performance inhabiting art spaces. The exhibition is composed of assemblies of ephemera, sound, video, paper and human interaction deployed through performative forms such as movement choirs, anthems, and moving sculptures, striving to rethink performance in museums as a creative experience for surprise response and shifting forms.

In dialogue with Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia’s main galleries, Lauri Stallings mixes the poles of Stallings practice: participation and choreographies. The work begins the moment people encounter it, and is presented continuously during the operating hours of the museum, persisting over time, to produce meaning and value through action, rather than objects.

Creative team: Lauri Stallings, conceptual artist and choreographer; Paper-Cut-Project, sculptor; Virgina Coleman, Mary Jane Pennington, Kristina Brown, Jennifer Clark, moving artists; artist Maggie Smith, photographers Thom Baker and Joe Dreher; fashion designer Maggie Dinkins; sound design, Tanner Smith; gloLAB artists Anicka Austin, Mandy Mpezo, Ariel Hart, Kristin Woods, Nadya Zeitlin; Production Specialist Richard Carvlin.
