'Olympus Manger', Scene II
doubled stages at 19’ x 24’ x 16’ eachbleachers, 2x4 studs, sheetrock, mirror, 1800’ rope, pulley system
As part of the continuing series constructing a conceptual play, ‘Olympus Manger’, Scene II uses the image of Tatlin’s Monument to the Third International as a symbol of entropic social landscape. The two towers on a doubled stage were pulled together through the duration of the exhibition to form the image of a mountain, another venerated landscape. In this scene, the actors are laborers for a tectonic shift in the structure of an idealized image, one that is seen only by the reflecting audience.
