Two videos from Miguel Angel Rios are being shown at the Galerie Thomas Schulte in Berlin. “A Moirr (Til Death)” is a video documenting a game of tops. The video is projected as three channels that show the action from different viewpoints simultaneously. The scale of the tops caught on video lend a human quality to this tragic ballet. Collisions are felt with the aid of heightened audio giving each clack a sense of importance.
Also on view at the gallery is the intense video “White Suit” in which an Argentine cowboy incorporates raw meat into a traditional dance. Throw in some wild dogs and the drama begins.
