MOVEMENT | An Exhibiton by Present Square
19th + 26th October 2019
How does playing music and on the contrary, staying quiet, influence our physical expression?
Movement is a an exhibition by the Present Square project by
, dealing with the question of visual documentation of the essence of music – that is showing the will of its creators in video works.
The artists will show a selection of video works that document music by capturing the body movements both of musicians in action as well as musicians remaining still. How does playing music and on the contrary, staying quiet, influence our physical expression? Present Square’s video works show musicians playing or not playing their instruments. When performing their instruments, the musicians move their bodies and, by contrast, when they are not playing, they do not move. Technological advancements over the last century have undermined this simple analogue logic. Focusing on cause-and-effect, Present Square references and critiques modern music videos, where musicians pretend to play their instruments to playback music.
The vernissage of the exhibition will take place at Werkhalle Wiesenburg on October 19th 2019 starting at 18.00h with
