Watering a Glass Flower II, (Some Meditations for Resonating Hourglasses Sounding the Shapes of Hours) a performance inside Manny Krakowski’s exhibition: Three Trophies, Some Cacti & A Freezer.
Artist David Horvitz has conceived of a sound performance with Angela Seo of Xiu Xiu Noise, sound artist Christine Sun Kim, & Icelandic musician and composer JFDR (Jófríđur Ákadóttir), who will collaboratively perform using handmade glass hourglasses that are filled with water and function as instruments. The Artists will play the hourglasses in a layered composition in which time is experienced visually, aurally, and metaphorically. Creating these vessels out of molds from a collection of hourglasses, Horvitz imbues their defined, quantified measurements with subjectivity, assigning a sound to the units of time that they are meant to carry. A photocopied text-work will be given away.
In his practice, David Horvitz suggests alternative methods of conceiving time, space, and synergy, incorporating both new and ancient technologies to measure, record, and transmit our distances. Horvitz has had solo exhibitions at Fotomuseum Winterthur, and tongewölbe T25, Ingolstadt; Edward Cella Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; Blum & Poe, Los Angeles; New Museum, New York; Jan Mot, Brussels, Dawid Radziszewski Gallery, Warsaw; Peter Amby, Copenhagen; Art Basel, 2013; Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; Chert. Group exhibitions include: MoMA, New York; Bielefelder Kunstverein, Kunstverein Nürnberg; Murray Guy, New York; Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen; Crac Alsace, Altkirsch; Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, NY.
