Installation and performance artist Naama Tsabar’s ongoing sculpture series Work on Felt defies the traditional place of felt in instruments as a silencer and transforms it into the instrument itself. As Tsabar describes how form, touch, and sound empower these works, watch a performance composed by local musicians Dylan Edrich and Jenna Flohr that brings the felt sculptures to life in SFMOMA’s galleries.
This interview was filmed on the occasion of Naama Tsabar: Work on Felt (Variation 2) and (Variation 11) Black, a performance presented in partnership with KADIST.
