Love 'em, Leave 'em

Kate Gilmore's avatar Kate Gilmore

This performance was created specifically for an exhibition at MOCA Cleveland. Love 'em, Leave 'em will be exhibited at ArtPrize in its video form. "...It is impressive, yet the detritus left behind abounds with ambiguity." The performance involves Gilmore carrying hundreds of vases with paint up each side of a structure and dropping them through a hole in the top, resulting in a three-dimensional painting referencing Jackson Pollock's abstract expressionist action paintings. "The ceramic pots (which shatter as she drops them from above) reference femininity and, in this piece, the historical vision of the female body as a container and reproductive vessel." -- Lyz Bly of the Collective Arts Network.
