The Cost Annex is pleased to present, for one night only,
a group exhibition curated by Helen Singh-Miller.
Movement catches the eye, but it is not easy to see. Can we spot the impetus to motion? Can we tell the stillness of a completed action from the stillness before it began? How does the perception of movement change as we move? The artists in this show animate the connection between rhythm and syntax, basic steps and speech. A language, a family, each city street is revealed to “contain multitudes,” as Walt Whitman sings about the self. “As if you tied a knot on a timeline so that the past and future switch places and cover the current moment in more curves" (Oliver Strand). Or, as William James describes the present, like "a canoe or a saddle," something you can move back and forth inside of; it has a definite duration, is not infinitely divisible like a geometric point. Cherished gestures from pop and conceptual art, postmodern dance and *the movies* are rethought and remade. Part of a wider commitment to the relevance of physical experience, this exhibition explores what human movement looks like now. The results are unlikely and affecting. Featuring the work of Julie Carr, Carmine Grimaldi, Deniz Tortum, Wendy Jacob, Will Johnson, Helen Mirra, Robert Moeller, Joseph Pomp, Nathan Liow, Tramaine de Senna, and Helen Singh-Miller. Exhibition essay by Argyro Nicolaou.
