The exhibition refers to two other works that present different takes on materiality, movement, and the body: the novel ‘A Moth to a Flame’ by Swedish author Stig Dagerman and Animal Locomotion, a work in the SCAD Permanent Collection by Eadweard Muybridge, a pioneering artist whose photographic studies of movement at the turn of the 19th century have become defining works.
