Christina Dy’s works flourishes in this gallery-turned-boutique hotel.
Push through the doors of Space Encounters Gallery, and you might wonder if you made the wrong turn. Suddenly, you’re no longer in a gallery (not that Space Encounters is your run-of-the-mill gallery, to begin with); instead, you’re transported to a boutique hotel awash in deep blues, with images of evocative flowers and fluid masculine forms.
An homage typically involves the construction of grandeur. When memorializing or celebrating, the usual recourse is to build the monumental in a bid against our own mortality. For Swiss artist Jürg Casserini, the approach to this homage is first taken through collecting things.
“BREAKPOINT” is an invitation to experience a visual log of disruption. In this collection of eight works, Pisano lifts visual cues from sequences of early 20th century photography commissioned by Albert Khan, a French banker and philanthropist who initiated a renowned photographic project spanning 22 years and 72,000 photographs entitled “The Archives of the Planet”.
On July 17, 2018, ArtistSpace and Metro Gallery present DISPOSABLE LIVES, the 5th solo exhibition of visual artist, Isobel Francisco. Disposable Lives chronicles the artist’s visual sojourn as she stares into the void of existence. In Francisco’s hands, waste becomes the central point of the discussion as the artist likens our brief lives to “cosmic garbage,” desperately piecing together human experiences that inevitably decay, disappear, or are rendered meaningless. Building upon the central image of the garbage bag, which was introduced in her 2016 exhibition Sea of Fertility, she wonderfully executes a collection that captures her observations on human ruin.
