video/sculpture was Peter Welz's first solo exhibition in New York City. The exhibition was a collaboration between Welz and choreographer William Forsythe that stemmed from their shared interest in the work of the late Samuel Beckett. For this project, Welz recorded Forsythe from various angles transposing a phrase written by Beckett into physical movements inspired by the unique cadences in Beckett’s writing. Projecting this video and tracing the movements of Forsythe’s left hand, Welz then created drawings that became the blueprint for a sculptural system of freestanding curved walls that were installed in the second floor gallery. The exhibition was curated by Matthew Lyons and Debra Singer.
