SCULPTURE RETROSPECTIVE: PROPOSAL

 
 
PURPOSE:
To show past and present "sculptures" with a corresponding catalogue to articulate Montano's 4-part sculptural evolution:

1. OBJECT MAKING 1965-PRESENT

2. CONCEPTUAL/LIVE OBJECT PRACTICE: CHICKEN SHOW (live or virtual chickens)

3. PERFORMANCE OF SELF AS A "LIVING SCULPTURE": CHICKEN BED, 14 YEARS OF LIVING ART

4. VIRTUAL SELF-SCULPTING VIA VIDEO (45 ENTRIES)

BACKSTORY:
MONTANO studied classical sculpture in Tuscany where she received a sculpture MA and at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, she received a MFA in sculpture with the presentation of THE CHICKEN SHOW, 9 live chickens in three 20 feet by 10 feet by 10 feet cages.
In the 70's she literally entered her work as a "LIVING SCULPTURE" and became THE CHICKEN WOMAN; lying down, sitting , dancing and singing as that persona.

THE SHOW:

1. 7 EARLY SCULPTURES: WOOD, METAL, STONE: RELIGIOUS ART, TORSO, HEAD, etc.

2. THE CHICKEN BED, THE CHICKEN SHOW etc.

3. NUMEROUS PHOTOS OF SCULPTURES FROM THE ARCHIVE.

4. OBJECTS IN VITRINES FROM EARLY PERFORMANCES.

5. THE ENTIRE 14 YEARS OF LIVING ART SHOW. See You Tube: SHHHHH

6. A WALL OF 45 MONITORS EARPHONED SO THAT A "SCULPTURAL" EFFECT IS CREATED BY REPETITION. EACH WILL HAVE ONE OF MONTANOS VIDEOS FROM 1970'S-NOW.

7. A CATALOGUE/BOOK WITH IMAGES OF EACH ENTRY AND A POSSIBLE DVD OF VIDEOS.
