A multi-media work combining music, video, performance, animation, clay reliefs, and paintings on glass, “The Comet and the Glacier” is a meditation on memory as a creative act. Alongside the work’s presentation within the installation at Locust Projects, the artist will also perform “The Comet and the Glacier” at the space during the exhibition’s opening night on November 19, with additional performances scheduled during Art Basel in Miami Beach week in December. The show is accompanied by a publication specially designed by the artist, featuring hand-written lyrics layered over stills from the films and three contextualizing essays.
