Squash (2008) – Openvideo Project

Who says squash and art don’t go together?

Here’s a short video by German film maker and visual artist Matthias Fritsch combining on-court movement with music and narrative. Fritsch’s work involves creating moving images and running workshops for video artists amongst others.

His art reflects everyday activities including, in this example, squash as well as global issues such as environmental protection. His recent research has focussed on ‘circles of matter’ and biological processes which could almost describe the dance movement of players chasing a soft rubber ball around a squash court.
