Late October

Written by
Arsenal Contemporary Art Toronto

Arsenal Contemporary Art Toronto is delighted to present the work of the Montreal-born artist Miles Greenberg. His work consists of large-scale, sensorially-immersive and often site-specific environments which revolve around the physical body in space. These installations are activated with durational performances, treating the body as a sculptural material.

In the fall of 2020, Greenberg staged an elaborate live installation titled Late October, which was inhabited by seven performers, including himself, for seven consecutive hours at Galleria Continua Les Moulins, an hour east of Paris. Perched atop rotating plinths and blinded by white contact lenses, the nude lacquered bodies of the performers revolved slowly above an ice blue basin. Greenberg cut footage from the live performance into a twenty-six-minute film which sees its world premiere at Arsenal Contemporary. On Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021 the work will travel westbound to be presented on the large public screens of Shibuya in Tokyo, Coex K-Pop Square in Seoul and Piccadilly Circus in London as part Circa x Dazed Class of 2021 filmmakers.
