Durational performance: Woman in E

Durational performance: Woman in E

The durational performance, Woman in E, is a part of the exhibition God, I Feel So Bad by Ragnar Kjartansson. In the middle of a circular backdrop of glittery gold strips, a solitary female figure stands in a sequin gown like a living sculpture on a rotating platform. She carries a Fender electric guitar hooked to an amplifier and when she strums it, E minor echoes through the gallery. The chord is a classic base in music as this is a very natural key for the instrument. It is melancholic yet insistent, in particular when repeated ad infinitum without variation as it is here.
