Jill Spector: The Editor’s President: Models and Mock-Ups for Elaine May, Nora Kaye, and Eileen Gray
In an installation of the JOAN vitrine, Los Angeles artist Jill Spector composes sketches and templates for the imagination of an idealized theater space. Inspired by a similar proposal for her installation Cutlets III included in the publication SchindlerLab.org, this piece explores themes of practice and theatricality through various unrealized forms. The vitrine is transformed into a stage made of wood and marble, while templates for lighting allude to a darkened set. Her soft and hard sculptures hint at a dance floor where the movement of invisible bodies and hands exist on a floating platform; sculptures that are also an amphitheater.
