Solange Knowles is showing fans a whole other set of skills after collaborating with Japanese clothing retailer Uniqlo on a performance art film for the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles.
Titled “Metatronia”, the film features an array of dancers moving in formations (Knowles did the choreography) within a cube-like sculpture and can be seen on the museum’s website.
“Metatronia (or Metatron’s Cube)” is described as “an interdisciplinary performance piece and reflection featuring dance and sculpture directed and created by Solange Ferguson in partnership with Uniqlo.” (Ferguson is her married name).
In an artist’s statement, Knowles, who just happens to be Beyonce’s sister, explains the meaning behind her film.
“Metatronia explores the process, and mapping of creation,” she writes. “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. Continuingy [sic] 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.”
