A STATE OF TRANSFORMATION: For "Late October," three sculptures were milled from a high-density material that could eventually be moulded and cast in bronze as positives, so the work appears to exist in permanent transformation.

Miles Greenberg: Late October

Miles Greenberg's artistic practice revolves around the creation of large-scale, sensorially-immersive, and site-specific environments that place emphasis on the physical body within a spatial context. These installations come to life through durational performances, where the body itself is treated as a sculptural medium.

The intricate live installation "Late October," which took place at Galleria Continua Les Moulins, exists in a captivating setting involving seven performers, including Greenberg himself. Inhabited in the space for a continuous duration of seven hours, positioned on rotating plinths and wearing white contact lenses that obscured their vision, the performers, adorned with a lacquered nude aesthetic, slowly revolved above an ice blue basin. Greenberg skillfully edited footage captured during this live performance, resulting in a twenty-six-minute film that will have its world premiere at Arsenal Contemporary, showcasing the transformative nature of his artistic vision.
