until 23.09. | #2124ARTatBerlin | König Galerie (Chapel) shows from 25th August 2018 the exhibition Being the measure of the artist David Zink Yi in collaboration with Angie Keefer.
We are pleased to announce David Zink Yi’s new exhibition ‘Being the measure’ in collaboration with Angie Keefer. The show consists of a single performance, which will take place in the nave on the opening day, and an ongoing video installation in the chapel.
‘Being the measure’ brings together minimalist sculptural and musical forms based on Zink Yi’s intensive research of Afro-Cuban musical contexts with a spoken word score composed by Keefer, regarding opposing physiological and philosophical concepts of being and knowing.
For the performance, Zink Yi will be joined by preeminent Cuban musicians Marvin Diz (New York), Adonis Panter Calderon (Cuba), Alain Perez (Cuba/Spain), and Regis Molina (Berlin). Together, they will activate Zink Yi’s constellation of percussive sculptures to generate an improvised polyrhythmic composition permeated by Keefer’s text.
A video work created from footage captured in the nave during the initial development of the performance in 2016 will be projected in the chapel.
‘Being the measure’ was commissioned by Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA), where it was first performed for a live audience in late 2016.
