Abigail Levine

Fat Chance, Hermes

Bend low.

Count by handfuls, the numbers

and the (crushing) force.

Fast ahead and slow return.

Fill the room with sound,

as it empties of light.



Abigail Levine is an artist working between New York and Los Angeles. Rooted in dance but moving across media—performance, text, drawing, sound—Levine focuses on the poetics of our body’s work. Her ongoing Restagings series, with presenting partner Fridman Gallery, has been supported by MacDowell Colony, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, New Music USA, Bogliasco Foundation, and Center for Performance Research. She is also at work on Redactions, developed with Chocolate Factory Theater and Los Angeles Performance Practice. Levine recently collaborated with composer Alvin Lucier at ISSUE Project Room and has performed with both Marina Abramovic (2010) and Yvonne Rainer (2018) in their retrospectives at the Museum of Modern Art.
