Melissa Haviland & David Colagiovanni will present their shattering exhibition ‘Music for Teacups’ on Friday, February 1, 2013 at Tallahassee’s 621 Gallery. The exhibition will include the artists’ book they created with FAR’s Small Craft Advisory Press (SCAP) in in the spring of 2012, the video ‘Music for Teacups’ in which teacups break, bounce, shatter and twirl in a magnificent ballet of image and sound, and a new performance ‘For Best’ in which the two will attempt to balance six sets of fine bone china on their heads while walking atop a balance beam.
Since its creation at SCAP in 2012, their artists’ book Music for Teacups has been in several exhibitions including: Book + Art: A Reading Room (Denison Museum, Granville, OH); In, On, Out of Paper (Paper Circle, Nelsonville, OH); and The Illustrated Accordion (Kalamazoo Book Arts Center, Kalamazoo, MI).
Haviland & Colagiovanni live and work in Ohio, USA. Their work explores class, etiquette, and heritage across a range of media including video, sound, printmaking, and artist books. For more information about their work visit melissahaviland.com and colagiovanni.net.
