Ruth Childs presents a second series of re-creations of her aunt Lucinda Childs’ pieces. Transmitted orally by the postmodern dance legend to her successor, these four pieces present a snapshot of the 70s and reactivate the radical nature of the postmodern gesture. Here, the repetition of the same motifs, following different geometric formulations, produces an obsessive combination of elementary and unaffected gestures and rhythms. In a world where new technologies and imagery have modified our visual frame of reference, the reactivation of these pieces by Ruth Childs allows for a new reading of these now classic pieces, whose relevance extends beyond that of a simple quotation.

 

The four pieces are shown in the following order:
Calico Mingling (1973)
Katema (1978)
Reclining Rondo (1975)
Particular Reel (1973)
