"Secondary Stories"

A timely arrival for a city still clearing the colorful dust from an 11-day Fiesta, renowned contemporary artist and 2001 Artpace resident Rivane Neuenschwander’s kinetic installation “Secondary Stories” references a “direct association” between confetti and her native Brazil’s week-long Carnival. Employing a similar visual vocabulary as her 2006 Cao Guimarães collaboration Quarta-Feira de Cinzas: Epilogue (a video that references Ash Wednesday and the aftermath of Carnival via ants marching around to samba music carrying bits of leftover confetti), “Secondary Stories” invites viewers to tilt their heads back and gaze up at a slowly shifting constellation of supersize confetti suspended by a translucent Coroplast ceiling. Activated by a network of hidden fans, the multi-colored dots shuttle around in clusters or fly solo — every so often slipping through one of four escape holes and fluttering down to the gallery floor. Evoking the type of banter that could occupy a kitten for hours on end, “Secondary Stories” sets the stage for meditative contemplation and playful selfies alike. Previously shown at New York’s Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, the room-size installation makes its Texas debut at the Linda Pace Foundation’s SPACE gallery accompanied by two photographic series and a trio of videos set to rotate during the show’s run.
