Moses Williams, Assistant Professor (Lecturer) in Sculpture Intermedia, traveled to Munich, Germany this summer for his exhibition at SeleenArt Galerie. In an evening in conversation with Williams, he gave an artist talk and there were live performances of Audio Testing Area by Andreas P throughout the reception.
Moses Williams: Shifting Ground– explores the co-mingling that occurs between all material bodies: human, animal, plant, mineral, and the full range of non-human sources. This is a phenomenological exploration that considers the vitality of our relationship to all things. The sculptural objects in Shifting Ground, appear to be interdependent bodily forms that are made from a diverse range of sensual materials. The sculptures function as part of an experiential narrative to suggest a world that is inextricable, varied, and complex.
The desert landscape of Utah and New Mexico is the location for the video and sound composition Places Remember. The video is a meditation on place and suggests "the natural world has stories to tell". As a body of work, the sculptures, video, and sound emphasize the importance of our relationship to specific places and things, and how we are shaped by these relationships.
The exhibition is on view until September 9, 2023 at SeleenArt Galerie, Theresienstraße 51, 80333 Munich, Germany.
