In conjunction with Frieze Los Angeles, Naama Tsabar will be performing Untitled (Double Face) with Kristin Mueller on the backlot of Paramount Studios as part of Frieze Projects on February 13, 14, and 15.
Untitled (Double Face) is a sculpture comprised of two guitars that have been fused together to form a single instrument. Sharing a back, the chromed-plated form is conjoined in a way that requires a mutual negotiation between the two performers. Moving in unison (or in tension), the performance infuses a seemingly neutral object with a sense of psychological strain. The doubling of both the guitar and the performer creates a space of frenetic tenderness – all the while, their backs turned to the audience.
Frieze Projects is curated by Rita Gonzalez, the Terri and Michael Smooke Curator and Department Head of Contemporary Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Pilar Tompkins Rivas, Director of the Vincent Price Art Museum.
