The Flesh And the Book
On view May 16 through June 15, 2013
DOOSAN Gallery, 533 West 25th St.
a solo exhibition of Jaye Rhee, from May 16 to June 15, 2013. The exhibition occupies her four-channel video which explores the intersections between performance, the moving image, and sound installation.
Casting original dancers of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Rhee renders the human body as minimalist shapes that convey an improvisational selection of 'notes' within a musical composition co-created with Elliott Sharp. The dancers' movements, both choreographed and organic, shift horizontally across the row of screens. At times, the movements flow synchronically with the sound while in other moments the relationship between the visual and aural becomes a series of independent juxtapositions.
