UPCOMING FINAL EXHIBITION IN RAUM 3 SPRING/SUMMER VIDEO SERIES
Ziegelstrasse 20, 10117 Berlin-Mitte
TONI CRABB 7 steps 6 legs: video & wait in drawing
16.- 21. AUGUST 2005
We are pleased to present a recent work by Toni Crabb, a Barcelona-based artist,
who is primarily working in drawing, but who uses video as a means of exploring
the temporal aspects of line. Over the period of six months last year, she made
a documentation of butterflies in a tropical arboretum located in Empuriabrava,
Spain. Although the resulting video depicts the perfect moment of transformation
when a butterfly emerges from its chrysalis, the sketchbook of drawings that she
produced while waiting for the butterflies to emerge, represents a significant
study of the metaphorical implications of waiting and expectation. The
soundtrack of the piece is an interpretation by the performance group Discoteca
Flaming Star of Patti Smith's "Fireflies"-- a song that Crabb describes as kind
of "countdown, steps." For her, the drawings and the soundtrack represent a
wandering towards and away from the literal subject of the video; it is intended
to introduce a kind of seriality critically linked to the event's unfolding.
Both the video and the drawings will be on view until Sunday, 21. August.
Toni Crabb is a Zimbabwean artist based in Barcelona. Crabb received her degree
Delta in Harare.
This exhibition represents the final installment of IN ABSENTIA, a 2005
spring/summer film and video series curated by Alena Williams.
