Performance: Thomas Kovachevich
Friday, March 6, 6:30–8pm


Alongside his current solo exhibition, Thomas Kovachevich will present a performance at the gallery. The performance (30 minutes) will be followed by a Q&A with Kovachevich and scholar Adela Kim.

Kovachevich repurposes a sculpture as a stage upon which he will present a performance. The performers are drawings on paper that he calls Characters. With lighting, an installation emerges transforming the gallery into a theater, and Kovachevich into the impresario of his theater company. The paper Characters are animated by the power of evaporation, which is among nature’s most powerful yet subtle forces.

Kovachevich has been creating these performances since the 1970s. In 1976, he patented the idea: “a method to effect a continuous movement of a fibrous material.”
