Jill Spector: The Editor’s President: Models and Mock-Ups for Elaine May, Nora Kaye, and Eileen Gray, JOAN, Los Angeles (September 2015)

September 12 – July 11, 2015

In an installation of the JOAN vitrine, Los Angeles artist Jill Spector composes sketches and templates for the imagination of an idealized theater space. Inspired by a similar proposal for her installation Cutlets III included in the publication SchindlerLab.org, this piece explores themes of practice and theatricality through various unrealized forms. The vitrine is transformed into a stage made of wood and marble, while templates for lighting allude to a darkened set. Her soft and hard sculptures hint at a dance floor where the movement of invisible bodies and hands exist on a floating platform; sculptures that are also an amphitheater.
