Solange has helmed a new performance art piece called Metatronia. On display at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, it’s an interdisciplinary dance and sculpture project featuring dancers from California State University.
“Metatronia explores the process, and mapping of creation,” Solange notes in artist statement on the Hammer Museum website. “The piece is an exercise on following the intuitive force that guides us, helping us to create space, and silence the mind to create the work. Continuing my practices and interest in exploring the relationship of movement and architecture as a meditation, Metatronia centers around building frequency and creating charge through visual storytelling.”
Solange was involved in all aspects of Metatronia’s creation. She directed the piece, assisted Griffen Frazen in sculpture design, and scored the music with the help of John Kirby. Gerard & Kelly provided the choreography.
“It’s been a dream to build modular sculptures that can tour, interact, and engage with the public … and I truly can’t thank you all for this support and space to evolve with these practices,” Solange wrote further on one of her Instagram posts about the art piece, which is presented in partnership with Uniqlo.
