The Spirit of a Thing
a single channel video installation at DAS MINSK, Potsdam

THE SPIRIT OF A THING

Equal parts reimagining, recreation, and new encounter, THE SPIRIT OF A THING speculatively explores the daily life of a musician who has been traveling on the road for decades in order to ruminate on the slippage between memory and time, truth and inner experience. Drawing inspiration from the East German leg of Louis Armstrong’s renowned 1965 European tour, TSOAT seeks to transmit the granular feelings from this moment into the present by attending to fleeting yet enduring scenes of intimacy, friendship, and ritual, while simultaneously blurring the line between fact and fiction, the contemporary and the archival.

 

The Spirit of a Thing will be on view at Das Minsk in Potsdam, Germany as part of the exhibition “I’ve Seen the Wall” curated by Paola Malavassi and Jason Moran from Sept. 2023 through Feb. 2024.
