An Evening of Endingness
Friday, February 1 at 7:00pm
“Endingness is the level of consciousness we acquire of a certain reality just in the moment when this reality is about to extinguish.” - Pablo Helguera
In conjunction with the exhibition Now Here is Also Nowhere: Part II the Henry will present a performance of Pablo Helguera’s Endingness, a composition for chamber orchestra designed to be performed together with the last movement of Franz Joseph Haydn's Farewell symphony. This performance is but one component of Helguera's three-part work, on view in the exhibition, and consists of three interrelated elements: a musical composition, a reconfigurable sculpture made of framed beeswax and an essay exploring themes of mortality, memory, art, and endings.
