A R E A Gallery

For the most recent engagement at David Guerra's SOWA location of A R E A Gallery, I was inspired by the work of artist Greg Lookerse which draws upon historic notions of religion and ritual. After a discussion with the artist and curator, cellist Francesca Mcneely and I decided that the Bach Cello Suites would be a great fit for the artwork being presented. Not only does the music of Bach have deep ties to religion, but for string players these works are a standard part of our daily practice rituals. By repeating certain sections of music and incorporating theatrical elements of ritual, we were able to enhance the narrative of the artwork while bringing the physical space to life.
