Miwa Matreyek steps behind the video screen to enter as a shadow into a world of her own animation. Traversing through oceanscapes and cityscapes, she discovers the magic worlds she conjures with her fingertips. While Matreyek’s performance appears as a cinematic experience on a screen, it is actually a collapsed product of multiple layers of animations, objects, and her body, rhythmically building a narrative together. Her work exists in a juxtaposition of illusion and non-illusion.
