Christian Marclay and Okkyung Lee Perform Calder's Small Sphere and Heavy Sphere
Calder: Hypermobility features an expansive series of performances and events, bringing contemporary artists into dialogue with Alexander Calder as they interplay their own disparate practices with his innovations. In this performance, artist and composer Christian Marclay activates Small Sphere and Heavy Sphere, 1932/33, Calder's first hanging mobile. Cellist Okkyung Lee responds musically to the movement qualities, sonic elements, and visual nature of the piece.
