An exhibition of new performative works by Tino Sehgal, will run at Marian Goodman in NY from May 3 – June 15, 2019.
The exhibition will present the U.S. debut of Yet untitled, a work in movement and sound. Yet untitled was first presented in the 55th Venice Biennale where Sehgal was awarded the Golden Lion for best artist. Yet untitled has subsequently been presented in exhibitions of Sehgal’s work at the Martin Gropius Bau, Berlin, The Palais Garnier, Opera National de Paris and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.
In this latest incarnation, Sehgal will present Yet untitled on a floor piece by Pierre Huyghe, titled 6 PM, 2000 and enacted by Margherita D’Adamo, Sandhya Daemgen, Nikima Jagudajev, Josh Johnson, Justin F. Kennedy, Thomas Proksch and Lizzie Sells.
Sehgal’s abandoning of material production in favor of lived experience is achieved with a sensitivity to classical considerations of form, composition and space, grounded not only in the history of dance but also western traditions of sculpture and painting.
Based on the artist’s compositions and choreographies, the works unfold in the adaptations of their respective players, thereby immersing their beholders in experiences ranging from individualized and intimate encounters to collectively shared situations. Although, as a rule, Sehgal’s works are always present throughout the entire opening hours of the exhibition, they remain mutable and never stay the same.
