A performance artist and sculptor whose three dimensional works often serve as props for his performances, John Bock presents Stapelung (Stack, 2007), a five-channel video sculpture displayed on the first floor of P.S.1. Each monitor will play a different video, a compendium of Bock??™s highly choreographed, absurdist films, including ???Meechhouse??? (2002), ???FoetusGott...in...MeMMe??? (2002), and others.
