Catenary

Coupler, closing event
Sunday July 2nd, 14:00, Xero, Kline & Coma.

Catenary, is a reading performance by Claire Potter with artist Frank Wasser that activates Potter's sculptural text installation, Coupler


Constructed over two floors and incorporating the connecting staircase, Coupler's provisional scaffold structure aligns two stretcher-like platforms on the first and lower floors of the gallery. Face-down on scaffolding mesh stretched across the platforms, are installed site writings made in Barcelona's gothic quarter, and at Gaudi's famously incomplete La Sagrada Familia Basilica. In adopted stress positions, Potter and Wasser will perform the task of reading these texts, comporting around descriptions of architectural form and the aftermath of a violent encounter. 


Doors will be open from 14:00 and Catenary will begin at 14:15.
