The Body as Teleportation

Moments and memories operating within the scales of time

This installation includes video from gathered footage aligned with mirrors etched with signifiers. These projections overlap the collage of epic scale which was extracted from many works on canvas. They are the remnants of personality and spirit – recharged as medium – in clothing and personal objects.

Angelbert Metoyer is a native Houstonian. He is a descendant of the freed slave Marie Thérèse Coincoin, the matriarch of a Cane river family who became a Louisiana plantation owner. His unique experience is reflected in his use of natural materials to consider the elemental nature of identity and futures.

In all of his works, whether they be visual, auditory, or performance, Metoyer explores the “hidden language of religion.” His works question and address ancestral memory, Jungian archetypes, and the human condition.

Metoyer is a renowned visual and performance artist, having studied at the Atlanta College of Art and Design, and shown at Miami Art Basel, the Houston Museum of Contemporary Art, Gerald Peters Gallery, the Dactyl Foundation, Project Row Houses, prominently featured at the Contemporary Austin's exhibition Strange Pilgrims curated by Heather Pesanti, and others.

His enthusiasm for engagement with the arts community has been consistent and unyielding. He has recently become involved with the Afrofuturism movement and has ongoing collaborations with post-punk poet Saul Williams, singer-songwriter Bilal, and hip-hop performer Mike Ladd.

This exhibition was developed as a community partnership with The Contemporary Austin's exhibition Strange Pilgrims, on view from September 27, 2015, through January 24, 2016.
