'Drag Drag Solo', Cally Spooner's coming show at Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève relies on an investigation on time, that fuses past, present and future into a complex and polydisciplinary script. Placing the starting point of the show in advance of the actual opening, Spooner calls back to a previous work that was produced at the same place on the occasion of the Biennial of Moving Images 18 months ago (Drag Drag Solo, 2016). The London-based artist uses it to fluidly connect within her semi-retrospective, made of pieces that are added as time-loaded layers, displayed on the different floors and spaces of the institution. While existing works, including And You Were Wonderful, On Stage (2013–15) recompose a 'novel in progress', Spooner uses the Centre's movie theatre as a space for the rehearsal and announcement of a yet-to-come project, from her own soon-to-launch performance company, OFFSHORE.
