DESCRIPTION


Mika Tajima's newly commissioned installation constructs a kind of sequestered, phantom performance space borrowing imagery and references from various archival sources ranging from Herman Miller's office furniture system from the late 1960s to the 1970 cult film Performance. Interested in the given roles and multiple functions at play in performance as well as Modernist aesthetic tropes, Tajima creates sculptural sites for potential actions which also become surrogates for absent performers.
