Sunday Inspiration: Metatronia, Solange’s Performance Installation

Solange’s new performance art piece “Metatronia” is an artistic interpretation of the process and mapping of creation. Аcсording to her statement, it is intended to personify the intuitive force that helps her “create space, and silence the mind to create the work”.

“Metatronia” is a truly interdisciplinary performance, incorporating filmmaking, dance, sculpture, and music. Made in partnership with Uniqlo clothing brand, it features choreography created in conjunction with Gerard & Kelly and dancers from California State University.

Metatron’s Cube, which Solange conceptualized and created, is the central piece of the performance. Its simplicity and minimalism facilitates the other aspects of the action. Solange intended for the Cube to be easily assembled and disassembled so that the performance could take place in different landscapes. There are whispers that she will tour with the piece at a later time.
