For her participation in the 2012 Whitney Biennial, Los Angeles-based artist Dawn Kasper has set up a studio in one of the museum’s spaces. The room is filled the personal belongings of the artist, including a tennis racket that spins on a motor, a bed, musical instruments, tv sets with Buster Keaton films running on it, and many things more. Dawn Kasper doesn’t sleep at the gallery, but during the opening hours of the museum she talks with visitors, performs music and creates other works. This installation or “living sculpture” as it is also called by the museum, is part of her ongoing “Nomadic Studio Practice Experiment”. Dawn Kasper lives and works in Los Angeles. Recently, she participated in the Trespass Parade in downtown Los Angeles.
