Performance by Jamie Isenstein at Art Basel 2011 / Interview

During Art Basel 2011 Brooklyn-based artist Jamie Isenstein was performing “Rug Woogie IV” at the booth of Galerie Meyer Riegger. Jamie Isenstein was seated at a classical harp. But the instrument didn’t produce any sound, on the contrary: Jamie Isenstein wasn’t plucking the strings, but weaving wool through them, covering their sound. The result of this process is a sculpture, a rug, woven into the harp by the artist. In this conversation with Dr. Bettina Krogemann, Jamie Isenstein talks about this performance / sculpture piece and her work in general.

Jamie Isenstein was born in 1975 in Portland, Oregon. She lives and works in New York City. Her solo exhibition titled “Double Feature! Empire of Fire and Rug Woogie IV” at Meyer Riegger Karlsruhe is still on show until July 30, 2011.
