Primary Research Lab

As a part of the ongoing summer events in the Outdoor Sculpture Collection at Western Washington University, Western Gallery commissioned Matt Drews and collaborator Gil Bar-Sela to respond choreographically to Scott Burton’s Two Part Chairs, Right Angle Version (a pair), 1983/1987.

I captured and edited the film to frame the visual landscape of their 15 minute performance at Primary Research Lab in Bellingham WA on July 24, 2016.

The performers bodies traverse a physical conversation with the sculptures, blurring the distinction between the raw materials at play, in order to unravel what is essential.

Primary Research Lab is an exhibition project which incorporates talks, tours, research facilities, performances, films and events to frame situations for actively viewing the collection of Minimalist and Post-Minimalist art at Western Washington University.
