Silke Otto-Knapp, “Monotones”
On 7 January 2017, Mary Boone Gallery will open at its Chelsea location Monotones, an exhibition of new work by SILKE OTTO-KNAPP, shown in cooperation with Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, New York/Rome, and curated by Piper Marshall.
The exhibition takes its title from the two-part ballet of Frederick Ashton, who, like historical and contemporary choreographers, phrased movement to compositions by Erik Satie. In this site-specific exhibition, Otto-Knapp reflects on the language and settings of performance. The artist asks us to relate painting to a “monotone,” an uninterrupted repetition, a gesture that is in extended use.
