Percussionist Ian Antonio and Ben LaMar Gay interact with Assaf Evron’s Collage for The Arts Club of Chicago


Assaf Evron’s Collage for the Arts Club of Chicago is the fourth chapter in the Collages for Mies van der Rohe project, following the McCormick House, The Esplanade Apartment, and S.R. Crown Hall, This is the first interior installation in the series. The Image of a semi-transparent Conch Shell installed on the glass windows in the gallery corresponds to the form of the enclosed Mies staircase and echoes the ancient past of its geological veneer. In response, Michigan-based Percussionist Ian Antonio and Chicago multi-instrumentalist Ben LaMar Gay engage with the geology of the Club’s gallery, exploiting the reverberant nature of the terrazzo and travertine. In this performance, they deconstruct musical materials and re-combine them to make something new, a metaphor for the process of breaking down shells to make travertine.
