Lucia Douglas Gallery loading dock, Bellingham, Washington, 2006
This video documents a performance on a loading dock behind the gallery. Using Klein's works - Hassock Column (2001), Tulle Column (2005), and Rain Bonnets (2001), this performance activated her sculptures, emphasizing the mutability and multitasking ability of art. The loading dock always seemed like a stage to me. I conceived of a performance activating some of my pieces, a kind of process. Take it out. Check it out, put it up, arrange it, rearrange it, transform it. Think about hard columns and soft columns, take apart the column, look at and sit down on it. For me art is mixed up in life, a place to act up, respond with, intersect and intervene.
