Work in progress video and stills of Infinitely Yours, to be completed in 2019.
Further pushing her medium of layered projections, Miwa Matreyek creates an emotional, dream-like meditation on climate change and the anthropocene - the proposed current era where human influence has effected almost all realms of earth’s natural systems. Miwa’s shadow traverses micro and macro worlds, as her silhouette shape-shifts to experience the world from various perspectives. A earth overflowing with trash. A person drowning in a plastic filled ocean. A school of fish caught in a trawling net. The work will be an emotionally impactful illustration of the complex harm humanity causes to the world, and what it might mean for all of us (including small critters, and the earth itself) to be living now in this changing world.
She performed a work in progress excerpt of the show at REDCAT in Los Angeles for NOW festival, where she was accompanied by live music by SORNE. She plans to make two iterations of the final project, a solo performance version and an alternate version that allows for some live music accompaniment.
