Circles cycle and shift in scale in this video about, through, into and out of Carol Bove’s monumental sculptures starring the exquisitely talented dancer Katie Gaydos. Circles are celestial bodies, the pendulum, the metronome, playing against the hands of a clock as Gaydos’ body traverses the forest of Bove’s sculptures, reminding us that time is nothing external, but an integral feature of our interior landscape. Bove’s title Chimes at Midnight is a reference to Orson Welles’ film of the same name. In this work Magenheimer examines temporality with humor and camp, conjuring Fellini’s La Strada and Charles Atlas’ collaborations with Merce Cunningham as it juxtaposes the concrete with the cosmos. As always in Magenheimer’s work, sound is treated with as much respect and attention to detail as image, as a feminist gesture to make unseen vibrations the driving force that propels the visual.
