Guido van der Werve, at Luhring Augustine Bushwick.
Physical feats of idleness on an icecap, meditative ponderings stemming from chess, the hoisting of a Steinway Baby Grand into a small second floor apartment to equip an orchestral concert therein, and various other sometimes amusing, sometimes melancholic narrative conduits steeped in anecdotal curiosities and classical music formed the visio-aural thrust of the Dutch artist’s suite of eight films in Luhring Augustine’s Bushwick outpost. The musical scores throughout, by the way—performed and at times composed by the artist himself—were by and large barely short of divine.
