The four video works in this show each focus on a simple yet demanding exercise: accomplishing a headstand, climbing, learning to sing, imitating a horse. Here, each activity is presented as existing somewhere between drill and ritual, between repetition and the compression of that repetition into a sort of driving force that, if given into, would veer only too close to oblivion.
