Geoffrey Farmer: Let’s Make the Water Turn Black, on view at Pérez Art Museum Miami from October 9, 2014 to March 1, 2015, is a theatrical installation involving combinations of found objects which the artist transforms into puppet-like figures, and kinetic elements choreographed with sound. Together, these pieces become theater plays or small operas with uncanny objects as their main performers. Geoffrey Farmer: Let’s Make the Water Turn Black is a coproduction of Pérez Art Museum Miami, Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Nottingham Contemporary, and Kunstverein Hamburg. This presentation of the exhibition is curated by PAMM Chief Curator Tobias Ostrander.
