Voice(full): A participation within the liminality of becoming
A performance by laub
in association with the exhibition by Kim Zumpfe
Saturday, July 7th from 7-10pm
In the artists own words… I will be using the voice as a means to gather and disperse particulates of human potential. Kim’s exhibition will serve as a platform of an in between, or of a non-space – the exposed wall, the skeletal remains of the couch, the sleepiness of the crawl space – speaking towards the potential of liminality. The voice will radiate, suffocate, meditate and penetrate the space and its listeners moving in and out of emptiness and fullness and being and becoming. It will be a durational piece for the entirety of the artwalk, incorporating silence and breath, tonal expressions, screams and melodic singing.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
laub is an artist living and working in Los Angeles using glass, video, drawing, performance, and music. He pulls traditions from an idealist, southern, Christian upbringing and meshes this with a colorful, queer, angst to construct and deconstruct patterns of Utopia. laub graduated with an MFA in Glass from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2012 and with a BFA in Craft/Material studies from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2008. He studied Design at Bornholm School of Glass and Ceramics in Denmark in 2009. Throughout the exhibition Kim Zumpfe: outside the length of a room I OR I diving into the blue sun, the artist and Grand Central Art Center will host a series of performances that directly respond to the concepts and environment of the installation space.
