This spring British artist Cally Spooner incorporates Soft Cells as part of her performance piece 'On False Tears and Outsourcing' at New Museum, New York. The performance installation comprises a series of architectural additions to the museum’s Lobby Gallery and a group of dancers trained by rugby players and a movie director. The dance group will be responding to Spooner’s conflicting choreographic instructions: to stay intimately bound together while remaining fiercely separate.
The long glass wall that separates the Lobby Gallery from the New Museum Lobby is a central feature of the installation. Spooner has emphasized the contrasts of the space through the use of background noise and the insertion of a 21 metre long wall of Soft Cells, soft white acoustic panels layered over the rear wall of the gallery.
The piece is produced in collaboration with Kvadrat and Lafayette Anticipation – Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette, Paris.
