On view through 31 July, Passing Leap at Hauser & Wirth, New York takes its title from the name of a complex trapeze trick. A passing leap is a manoeuvre of great precision and skill, culminating in a dynamic moment in which an aerialist’s perspective is flipped, time is suspended, and the laws of physics seem to be broken. The artists included in this show are connected by a specific interest in challenging the conventional relationship between viewer and artwork.
