@Here Arts Center
Beat box rhythms captivate, paintings are formed instantaneously, and
live video provides insight and perspective as Adam Matta attempts to bridge
the physical gap between his Egyptian roots and American identity,
represented by two video instillations. With a heightened awareness of
mechanism, closely placed cameras capture Matta¹s every move, a digital
pedal loops and distorts his voice, and freshly painted tires create
paintings as Matta does trick moves on his bike. Makeshift re-imagines and
re-contextualizes the role of accident and improvisation in the creation of
a composition.

Jan. 30-Feb. 4, Feb. 7-11
