Exhibition — 16 Apr until 22 Apr 2015
Maria Hassabi’s new live-installation PLASTIC continues to explore the figurative role of the performer, having been precisely sculpted within the fixed architectural environment of the museum.
Her works include PLASTIC (2015), PREMIERE (2013), INTERMISSION (2013), Counter-Relief (Kaai 2013), SHOW (2011), Robert and Maria (2010), Soloshow (2009), Solo (2009), GLORIA (2007), Still Smoking (2006), Dead is Dead (2004) and LIGHTS (2001). She has also created several short-form pieces, art installations including PLASTIC (2015) and CHANDELIERS (2012), and a short film, THE LADIES (2012). Her works are presented in theaters, museums, galleries and public-spaces worldwide.
