newmuseum A detail from Eva Kotátková's work "Not How People Move But What Moves Them" (2013—ongoing). For this piece, Kotátková creates what she has described as a "strange image vocabulary that depicts concrete spatial situations in which the body can be everyday activities as well as states of mind." #SurroundAudience #TA15 6d

newmuseum The structures as part of Tania Pérez Córdova's series "Things in Pause" (2013–ongoing), are made from materials that typically connote endurance and durability, in marked contrast to the fleeting lives of the objects themselves. In "We focus on a woman facing sideways, evening" (2014), on view at the top of the stairway of the Shaft Space between the 3rd and 4th Floors, her grandmother's earring is suspended from a handmade bronze cast of the gallery corner. #SurroundAudience #TA15 2w

newmuseum Shelly Nadashi's work, "A Good Bowl of Soup" (2013), was first presented in Brussels in 2013 as a puppetry performance in which Nadashi manipulated a crudely hewn papier-mâché puppet that delivers a monologue about the process and significance of making soup to a large "pot-poster"—a painting on paper tracing the shadow cast by a pot. #SurroundAudience #TA15 2w
