Mia-zilla vs. the New Museum!
May 7th, from 8pm - midnight, a short time-lapse video of me (5 storeys
tall!) creating a new site specific cut paper installation "inside"
the New Museum building will be projected on its entire 174' façade.
Hopefully frightened citizens will not run down the Bowery with torches,
calling for my destruction...
inside of an 11' high scale model of the museum over 8 hours, the final
30 second video will show a dramatic weather system that gradually fills
the museum, swirling inside of its walls, dematerializing the interior
of the building.
project is particularly exciting to me because my work is all about transforming
the interior of a familiar museum or gallery, blurring the boundaries
between interior and exterior space. To be able to do that on this scale
is truly enormous for me as an artist.
video is part of Let
Us Make Cake, a collaborative projection directed by Nuit
Blanche New York and Light Harvest Studios. Let Us Make Cake
is part of the Festival
of Ideas for the New City, which runs from May 4th - 8th.
range from established artists such as Vito Acconci, Jon Kessler and Marilyn
Minter, to emerging artists such as SOFTlab, Chris Jordan, Mia Pearlman,
Dustin Yellin and Brooklyn-based street artists. The 20 minute program
of projections will loop from 8pm - 12am. I hope you can make it!
