The Movement Project was exhibited at Werkhalle Wiesenburg, Oct. 19 – 26 2019. Present Square showed two Pin Squares and five Video Works.
The main Pin Square in the exhibition focused on the musical projects of Present Square – reflected in notes and drawings related to the project’s band, Present Square vinyl releases and records from contributing musicians as well as music-video material.
Present Square’s video works for MOVEMENT show musicians playing or not playing their instruments. When playing their instruments, the musicians move their bodies and, when not playing, their bodies are still. Technological advancements over the last century have undermined this simple analog logic. Focusing on cause-and-effect, Present Square not only gives visual form to music via the physical movements of the musicians, but also references and critiques modern music videos, where musicians pretend to be playing their instruments to playback music.
Opening: October 19th with ACIINTT, a Sound Performance by Erik Smith
Closing: October 26th with a Live Concert by Present Square
