Martine Syms: Ugly Plymouths 👀
5239 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90038
Feb 12, 6 PM - 8 PM — ends Feb 17, 2020
Presented by Sadie Coles - London and Bridget Donahue Gallery - NYC::: Ugly Plymouths is a one-act play for three screens starring Hot Dog, Doobie and Le Que Sabe. The three characters talk and sing alongside and over each other, one receding as another moves into the foreground. Sometimes dialogue falls into a robotic unison, a kind of emotionless chorus. The voices define the distance between them more than the relation. They have trouble relating, despite their efforts at romance, and this troubled relating is the subject of their dialogue.
