MoMA PS1 Presents: No gods only flowers – July 29 & 30
Puerto-Rican artist duo Poncili Creación will perform No gods only flowers, a larger-than-life performance from 80-foot-tall boom cranes high above MoMA PS1’s Courtyard on July 29th at 7 p.m. and July 30th at 3 p.m. The presentation vigorously interrupts the urban hardscape of Long Island City with the strength of a flower bursting through pavement to bloom in the summer sun.
Liberating the boom crane from its typical activity of heavy lifting in construction, Poncili Creación fantastically animate, in real time, another kind of growth process: photosynthesis. Since 2012, the collective––brothers Pablo and Efrain Del Hierro, and their collaborators––have made spontaneous processions and performances informed by their prior work in dance and experimental theater and articulated through colorful and manipulable sculptural forms handmade from salvaged polyurethane foam and fabric. Their practice of radical puppetry is an energetic celebration of life, imagination, and absurdity. The large-scale puppets will remain on view in PS1’s galleries following the performances, as part of the exhibition Life Between Buildings.
Venue: MoMA PS1
