Still from Metatronia (Metatron's Cube), by Solange Knowles, 2018

Metatronia (Metatron's Cube), 2018

An interdisciplinary performance piece and reflection featuring dance and sculpture directed and created by Solange Ferguson in partnership with Uniqlo.

Artist's Statement

Metatronia explores the process, and mapping of creation. 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.
