John Bock: Stapelung

Oct 21, 2007–Jan 7, 2008


P.S.1 is proud to present Stapelung (Stack, 2007), a five-channel video sculpture by the performance artist and sculptor John Bock. Each monitor plays a different film; a compendium of Bock’s highly choreographed, absurdist films, including Meechhouse (2002), (2002), NogoJones Dandy (2002), Wühl um die Klumpen (2002), and Sechser Tragerl Sushi Aschai Periskop quatscht Schwamerl – Wie kann man das Gobu Ten Udong mäßig bekleben (2004). The installation will be on view at P.S.1 from October 21, 2007 through January 7, 2008.

Special thanks to Anton Kern.
