The Kitchen presents the first New York solo exhibition by the Berlin-based artist Peter Welz as a part of a series of collaborations with choreographer William Forsythe that stems from their shared interest in the works of Samuel Beckett.
In this new project, a video depicting Forsythe's physical interpretation of a written phrase derived from Beckett is projected onto an architectural construction. This structure's contours, in turn, are Welz's transposition of Forsythe's movements into abstract three-dimensional form.
Combining elements of video, sculpture, and drawing, the installation offers a complex meditation on both the physical and mental processes by which we perceive, and make sense of, the figure in space. The exhibition is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 12:00pm to 6:00pm, and on Saturdays from 11:00am to 6:00pm.
