MassMoca

MassMoca, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art is an amazing and massive space.

Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle’s project Gravity Is a Force to be Reckoned With, based on Mies van der Rohe’s 50×50 House project.

The entire space is inverted, suspended from the ceiling… except a coffee cup and saucer which has come crashing down from the table.

The phone rings and a narrative is played from within the glass house. A frustrated couple trying to sort out the story.

Guy Ben-Ner: Thursday the 12th is a collection of video installation, interactive video sculptures and drawings. Ben-Ner uses humour and DIY approach to his process.


Underlying many of Ben-Ner’s videos is the tension that exists between his dual roles as artist and father. Choosing to work at home when his first child was born, Ben-Ner has since incorporated his domestic life into his artistic practice of creating films based on American Classics such as Moby Dick and Robinson Crusoe.
