Dia:Beacon, NY, USA
17 May – 1 September 2008
This installation consists of six distinct films depicting legendary choreographer and dancer Merce Cunningham performing Stillness, his singular choreography to John Cage’s radical 1952 composition, 4’ 33”. In each film, the fixed camera remains focused on Cunningham, who sits in a chair and assumes a variety of attitudes. This static scene is broken twice, when Trevor Carlson, director of the Cunningham Dance Company, marks the three parts with a simple gesture. Subtly different, each performance has been filmed from a different camera angle. Each is presented on a screen whose dimensions are calibrated to render the image of Cunningham life-size.
Tacita Dean will also take part in the Folkestone Triennial

Whitechapel Laboratory, London, UK
13 February – 30 March 2008
Whitechapel Laboratory presents Cornelia Parker’s filmed interview with renowned writer and theorist Noam Chomsky who addresses the failings of government, corporations and the media to take responsibility for the ecology of our planet. He urges us to change our lifestyles and bring about socio-economic change. Though Parker fears that the planet may not be able to sustain human life by the end of this century, her work prompts reflection on our collective responsibilities and possible solutions.
