Shulamit Nazarian will present Closer (2014), by New York-based Naama Tsabar, during the Seattle Art Fair

Closer (2014), by New York-based Naama Tsabar, is a hybrid of installation, sculpture, instrument and performance. Two conjoined walls, standing in the aisle of the art fair, form a free-standing corner that has strings and microphones fused to it and connect to amplifiers and speakers.

Tsabar shifts the fairs architectural support structures from the display of art to the propagation of sound and gives articulation to the preexisting acoustics embedded in the structure.




Throughout the weekend, the artist and the musician Fielded will collaborate in a performance composed on the corner activating its acoustic qualities.
