After her epic dance-off with Beyoncé at Coachella last Saturday (14 April), Solange has released an interdisciplinary performance piece online, entitled Metatronia.
The video is available to watch online now, and the installation has been unveiled at UCLA’s Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. Directed and created by Solange, the piece combines dance with sculpture, exploring “the process, and mapping of creation”. Metatronia features a collaborative score from Solange and composer John Kirby, and the sculpture itself has also been designed by the Cranes in the Sky hitmaker.
Acording to Solange’s statement, “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 centres around building frequency and creating charge through visual storytelling.”
Recently, Solange was named as the 2018 Harvard Foundation Artist of the Year. In March, she revealed she’s working on new music, and that she’s been jamming in the studio with The Internet’s Steve Lacy.
