Social Sculpture No. 1

 

 

Debuting at The Kitchen in October, 1999, Social Sculpture No. 1 was the first video installation by the Italian visual artist, Anita Sieff. Exploring communication as a mean for social inquiry, Sieff projected fragments of her interviews with twelve artists from different disciplines onto a printed astrological chart. Co-presented by The Kitchen and Thearts[enter], Social Sculpture No. 1 was a video-installation happening. As these videos progressed at different rhythms, audience followed the personal journey of individual artist participating in the evolving human consciousness that Sieff intended to present and reposition. The ever-changing process of transformation as well as the infinity of potentialities that a person could become characterized the happening nature of Sieff’s installation. Communication, as Sieff described "initiates the process of merging, of participating towards a new means of 'reconstruction.'"
