Soft Cells Presents: Jules Gimbrone, Collapse Score #7- External, 2018
June 9–July 20, 2018
Score for Materials:
SoftCells, a conceptual/curatorial project run by artist Agnes Bolt, considers the various ways that social, cultural, and political constructs become materially inscribed on the body, on a personal and intimate level. Working closely with individual artists as an extension of Bolt’s own practice, all SoftCells exhibitions are presented on or in relation to Bolt’s body. For take care, Bolt invited artist Jules Gimbrone to develop a new work. Gimbrone created a new iteration of their Collapsed Scores series using specimens collected from Bolt’s daily life for a month. These ephemeral objects—spit, hair, moisturizer, et cetera—decay over time between glass planes. Gimbrone works with sculpture and sound to understand how the social world codifies the body through gesture and performance. Presenting an imprint of Bolt’s body through her routine during a set period, Collapsed Scores operates as a potential score for choreography and sound, one that could perhaps be activated or reinterpreted on another occasion by another body.
