"Our first animated piece Meditation not Medication is a character study of a little monster whose purpose in life is meditation. As he closes his eyes he drifts into visions and comes back occasionally to a blissed out present. The video itself is meant to function as a visual meditation. Using imagery from our own meditations on geometry, color and natural mathematics - we hope to engage the viewer in a short guided vision quest."

“The centerpiece of the exhibition is Steinkamp’s Impeach (2019). Previously exhibited as a printed billboard in “Jam, The Billboard Creative,” a public art project organized by Mona Kuhn and Alex Prager in Los Angeles in 2017, Impeachhere bursts to life as a digital animation for the first time. A mash-up of stage diving fruit, especially peaches, plunging themselves against an invisible wall, the work hints at the possibility of a new spring for America should the titular political and legal process be set in motion, as well as the destruction left in the wake.
In gathering significant works originally created in the context of major exhibitions, Impeach offers a valuable reminder of the breadth and ambition of Steinkamp’s practice, and of the important historical position she holds as one of the first artists to experiment with constructing imagery—including color, texture, and movement—by wholly digital means. By simulating natural movement in cycles that are at once familiar seeming and entirely unique, Steinkamp conjures the uncanny impression of artificial life. To this existing element of internal contradiction, the present exhibition’s title adds an allusion to current social and political tension—and the hope of eradicating the corruption.”

This exhibition brings together two artists – born centuries apart – who explore the same universal themes with works of transcendent beauty and raw emotional power.
In 2006, pioneering video artist Bill Viola saw the finest of a collection of these drawings at Windsor Castle, and was astonished by the Renaissance master’s expressive use of the body to convey emotional and spiritual states. Although created in a radically different medium, Viola’s own works also grapple with life’s fundamental questions, asking us to consider the thresholds between birth, life and death. Both artists harness the symbolic power of sacred art, and both show us physical extremes and moments of transcendence.
