'RIVANE NEUENSCHWANDER: SECONDARY STORIES’ AT LINDA PACE FOUNDATION, TEXAS, USA

30 April 2016
The Linda Pace Foundation presents the Texas debut of Secondary Stories, a room-sized installation by Brazilian artist Rivane Neuenschwander. Neuenschwander has become widely regarded for her often ephemeral work that explores narratives about language, nature, social interactions and the passing of time. Showcasing Secondary Stories as well as three video installation works, the exhibition opens at SPACE, the public gallery of the Linda Pace Foundation. Linda Pace Foundation trustee Kathryn Kanjo states, "The Linda Pace Foundation is delighted to present this hypnotic installation by Rivane Neuenschwander. In Secondary Stories, she seems to take viewers through the looking glass: the outsized confetti makes us feel small and we become lost in the slowly shifting play of light and color. Since her Artpace residency in 2001, Rivane has achieved great acclaim, with major exhibitions at the New Museum 2010 and mal-entendidos at the Museu de Arte Moderna de Sao Paulo in 2014, which included a version of Omission Points, created at Artpace."

In the main installation, Secondary Stories, a constellation of brightly coloured circles is visible through a translucent ceiling. Hidden fans gently move the confetti-like shapes across the scrim surface, creating a dynamic abstraction. The exhibition will also include three videos works: Quarta-Feira de Cinzas/Epilogue (2006), made in collaboration with Cao Guimarães; Inventory of Small Deaths (Blow) (2000), also made in collaboration with Cao Guimarães; and Love Lettering (2002), which the artist produced in collaboration with her brother Sergio Neuenschwander.

Secondary Stories runs from 30 April 2016 until 29 July 2017.
