New Diagonal is a choreographed video work that combines various movements from fast track athletics, aerial skiing, high diving, cycling, and yoga. These movements are performed in relation to a three dimensional triangle, which provides physical support for the body throughout the routine. New Diagonal explores how movement and gesture translate into significance. This video was first exhibited as part of a painted sculptural object, extending Kosloff’s interest in the dynamics of sport, abstraction and aesthetic formalism.
