Gordon Matta-Clark


March 21–June 20, 1971 112 Greene Street/Workshop

Exhibition Description

Gordon Matta-Clark is reported to have created a piece in the basement in which performers lay concealed under piles of dried leaves or bushes for a very long period of time. Then they began to move very slowly so that parts of their bodies became exposed. Suddenly they burst forth and ran from the basement.
