from the MoMA PS1 website:
LAUREL NAKADATE is known for her works in video, photography, and feature-length film. This Nakadate’s first large-scale museum exhibition and will feature works made over the last ten years in all three media,including her early video works, in which she was invited into the homes of anonymous men to dance, pose, or even play dead in their kitchens, bedrooms, and living rooms.
Also included will be Good Morning, Sunshine (2009), a more recent work in which Nakadate enters the bedrooms of young women, wakes them, and instructs each to strip down to their underwear for the camera. Nakadate’s two features, Stay the Same Never Change (2009) and the The Wolf Knife (2010) mine similar terrain – the power and fragility of the adolescent female body. The exhibition will also be the premiere of Nakadate’s latest photographic series, 365 Days: A Catalogue of Tears, currently in progress. These photographs document a year-long performance that began on January 1, 2010, in which the artist documented, and continues to document herself before, during, and after weeping each day.
The exhibition brings together bodies of work that touch on voyeurism, loneliness, the manipulative power of the camera, and the urge to connect with others, through, within, and apart from technology and the media.
Laurel Nakadate: Only the Lonely is organized by KLAUS BIESENBACH, Director of MoMA PS 1 and Chief Curator at large at The Museum of Modern Art.
