NOTHING#122: a bed
- Keith Haring Theatre
- May 12 - 13 | 7pm
Performers: Michelangelo Miccolis and nick von kleist
NOTHING#122: a bed, is the second part of Autumn Knights’s three-part investigation into the Italian concept of “dolce far niente,” the sweetness of nothingness. Knight’s performance explores the possibility of rehearsing loss and takes place between two performers in a shared bed. The performance is inspired by a conversation between the late conceptual artist Félix González-Torres and Hans-Ulrich Obrist. Within the conversation, González-Torres speaks of making art to confront his greatest fear of losing his partner who later died of AIDS-related complications.
Autumn Knight’s performances create space for intimacy between audience and performer. The accompanying two works in this suite of three include NOTHING#122: a bar and NOTHING#122: a bluff.
