Three Ls (Elles)

Three Ls (Elles)

Three Ls (Elles) is a trio that draws a link between Robert Morris’s relationships and work with three seminal dance-performance artists—Simone Forti, Yvonne Rainer, and Carolee Schneemann—and the principle behind his sculptural work Untitled (3 Ls): to consider the “same form simultaneously from multiple perspectives.”[1] The choreographed work begins with the static forms of Morris’s sculpture and animates them in a tumbling choreographic loop that can be staged in a gallery or public space.
