Re-stagings No. 1: Choreographing LeWitt at Fridman Gallery
The 3,744 lines that comprise Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing #56 (1970) take Abigail Levine twenty-five hours to complete, five hours of movement each day for five days. In a 12 x 12’ square, Levine performs the Wall Drawing one line at a time, following LeWitt’s instructions as he wrote them. Sound designer Dave Ruder captures the sound of each line, the pencil’s mark making amplified via contact microphones and played back into the room. As the drawing is performed, a sonic archive accumulates around it in a multi-channel sound installation with speakers spread throughout the space.
