Allora & Calzadilla Specters of Noon

Allora & Calzadilla Specters of Noon (Hardback)

£45.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

The Puerto Rico-based collaborative duo Allora & Calzadilla created Specters of Noon as a group of seven large-scale works specifically for the Menil Collection. Orchestrated around the idea of Solar Noon, a notion derived from Surrealist texts by Roger Caillois, Aime Cesaire, and others that probe the transcultural mythology of noon-the time of day when shadows disappear and delirious visions momentarily reign-the works include light projections, guano, ship engines, live vocal performance, and coal. Using the Menil's Surrealist holdings as a point of departure, Specters of Noon is infused throughout with a Caribbean perspective that addresses the instability of environmental and colonial politics; one work is a massive power transformer damaged in Hurricane Maria that is half-sheathed in copper. Filled with stunning installation photography and insightful texts both commissioned and reprinted, this volume captures the spirit of Jennifer Allora (b. 1974) and Guillermo Calzadilla's (b. 1971) deeply researched and multifaceted work.

Michelle White is senior curator at the Menil Collection, Houston. Roberto Tejada is the Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Distinguished Professor at the University of Houston.
