Ugly RoomMeet me in the ugly room
No, the ugly onethat one is fine
I mean the one I can't stand to be in
Bring an axe
This is not a metaphorThis is what I actually want from you
If I'm ever going to love againI need you to bring an axe to the ugly roomI need to speak with you directlyabout failure & disappointment
since we've both learned to identify things
their origins at least
Objects can give pleasure
holding them at least
When you were goneI held everything belonging to you
I felt a twinge

InteriorEva lives in one room overlooking a narrow cul de sacnear Union Square, Market Street, the financial district—beyond the other end of Chinatown. And I find the place,so the instructions she gave me at the MDR were good.
Upstairs, we drink our tea sitting on the floor, the lackof any furniture except a thin pallet proof of her strictattention to detail, like the pale rose climbing her facewith a soft glow that’s kissable. But she knew I would.
After we dress, though, there isn’t quite so much to say,and the hardwood floor lights up as the room darkens.All at once I remember a friend I’m supposed to meet.
We’d planned to have dinner. We’ll do that another day.The shine from the floor deepens as the room darkens.We hug goodbye in the alley. I walk out onto the street.

In conjunction with the installation of Hanne Darboven’s Kulturgeschichte 1880–1983 (Cultural History 1880–1983, 1980–83), Dia Art Foundation presents four performances of Darboven’s musical compositions for double bass. Completed in 1984, Wunschkonzert is both a large-scale visual installation and a four-part musical score for double bass, featuring Opus 17A, Opus 17B, Opus 18A, and Opus 18B. Opus 17A was first presented at the 1996 opening of Cultural History 1880–1983 at Dia Center for the Arts. In addition to Opus 17A, Robert Black, who performed the work in 1996, performs the three companion pieces—Opus 17B, Opus 18A, and Opus 18B. All four concerts take place within the installation at Dia:Chelsea to allow visitors to experience a live performance of Darboven’s musical work within the all-encompassing visual impact of her installation.Robert BlackRobert Black is a musician and composer for the solo double bass who collaborates with actors, artists, composers, dancers, musicians, and technophiles.
