CALLY SPOONER: ON FALSE TEARS AND OUTSOURCING. Helga Christoffersen. New Museum, New York, 2016. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 136 pp. with 136 ills. (76 col.). 25 x 19 cm. ISBN 9781942607342 In English.
Publisher's description: The live performances of British artist Cally Spooner (born 1983) consider the ways in which labor and communication make demands on our bodies. Spooner engages actors, vocalists, dancers and musicians who collectively interrogate gesture and language. The artist's 2016 exhibition at the New Museum, Cally Spooner: On False Tears and Outsourcing, marks an important shift in her live performances, extending their duration to the length of a museum exhibition. The choreography is structured according to the logic of corporate development meetings, and appropriates gestures from both romantic movies and competitive contact sports. This catalogue contains an essay by Helga Christoffersen, an interview between Spooner and Documenta 14 curator Hendrik Folkerts, and a contribution by artist Dan Graham.
