The historical exhibition, which will comprise over 100 positions, is being co-curated by Manifesta 11 Chief Curator Christian Jankowski together with English Curator Francesca Gavin. 'The Historical Exhibition: Sites Under Construction' will take up and explore the various ways in which current and historical working worlds have been portrayed in art. Kim Gordon's work, Black Glitter Circle, is an imagined piece of evidence of the "rock trance." It signifies a modern type of myth making where the performing musician is in a state of near possession. The shape is made to represent the circumference of the performer's arms "in-spin"- in this case, Gordon's.
