DOUBLE LIFE: WU TSANG, HAEGUE YANG, JEROME BEL. Joanna Ahlberg. Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, 2016. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 176 pp. with 75 ills. (35 col.). 30 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781933619538 In English.
Publisher's description: Double Life documents and brings to life works by the internationally celebrated artists Jerome Bel, Wu Tsang and Haegue Yang. It explores possibilities for performance without living bodies. Exhibited works include an immersive light and sculpture installation, a 16mm film loop, live and recorded dance presentations, and a newly commissioned video installation. The works in Double Life blur the boundaries between staged narratives and real-world encounters, and transform quotidian materials and situations into memorable experiences. They reference a range of temporalities and operate in spaces between the visual and performing arts, fiction and documentary, encounter and record, feeling and representation. Here, bodies traverse boundaries, and through their actions the physical and sociopolitical capacities of the term "movement" are offered for consideration. Similarly, as essayist Litia Perta writes, these works "urge us to consider ways in which objects might also be responding."
