Sums & Differences

Gary Hill, Steina & Woody Vasulka

September 17th – December 18th 2022.

The exhibition Sums & Differences brings together works by Gary Hill, Steina, and Woody Vašulka. It aims to present the commonalities of their earliest explorations and the subsequent divergence of their artistic practices, their conceptual, performative, and contemplative interpretations of the physical and the immaterial, along three unique trajectories reflecting their distinct sensibilities and unique syntaxes.

This collaborative project offers a new, albeit reductive, path through the artists’ extensive practice. In the exhibition the mutual exploratory relationship between image and sound is highlighted. The spectrum of work presented at the exhibition, spanning several decades, is a range of pieces from early exploratory works with electronic processing tools documenting real-time machine interactions, their performance and use as an augmentation of the senses, through works reflecting the development of each of their vocabularies and how the artists utilize, examine, or break with the algorithm or code in a unique way through their experiential research.

Gary Hill will create a new piece specifically for the exhibition project. Steina’s most recent installation Pergament will be shown and several rarely seen film works by Woody Vašulka will be featured in this new unexpected constellation.

Curators: Kristín Scheving, Halldór Björn Runólfsson & Jennifer Helia DeFelice.
