"Constructing a space and telling a story became more interesting to me than what the actual object was." —Abigail DeVille

The ART21 New York Close Up series introduces three new artists to the roster today: Louise Despont, Bryan Zanisnik, and, in a film premiering here today, Abigail DeVille.

In the film, DeVille constructs an interactive installation used as the set for a performance of Adrienne Kennedy’s play, She Talks to Beethoven (1989), at the JACK arts center in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.
