Kate Gilmore’s are devises strenuous, physical propositions without clear, purposeful outcomes. Whether kicking and climbing out of a drywall column, stacking shelves with paint-filled pots, or maintaining her balance atop a pile of marble being sledge-hammered from beneath her, Gilmore’s actions assert a dogged persistence, dark humor, and a stark sense of risk.
For TBA:11, Gilmore will create a site-specific installation, video, and performance-based project. In a private performance for the camera, a quintet of women will tear apart an enormous cube comprising more than5,050 pounds of wet clay. As the block disappears, the space will be covered in the evidence of action.
