Anthony McCall:
Breath [the vertical works]

March 20 -June 21, 2009

Via Chiese 2
20126 Milan

Curated by Serena Cattaneo Adorno

McCall’s “solid light” series began in 1973 with Line Describing a Cone. Most of the series has been horizontal in orientation. But since 2004, he has also been developing installations which explore height and verticality. This exhibition will present six of these works, only one of which has been exhibited before. They include Breath I (2004), Breath II (2004), Breath III (2005), Between You and I (2006), Coupling (2009) and, commissioned specifically for Hangar Bicocca, Meeting you Halfway (2009).

The series demonstrates McCall’s multi-disciplinary practice, where the fusing of installation, film, sculpture and performance creates a dialogue with the vast industrial space of Hangar Bicocca.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an illustrated catalogue with a critical text by Hal Foster published by Edizioni Corraini, Mantova and available from April 2009.
