Adrian Paci: Gestures

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 6 aprile 2010

New York until 15/5/2010 526 West 29th Street, Peter Blum Chelsea Peter Blum is pleased to announce the exhibition Adrian Paci: Gestures. This will be Adrian Paci’s second exhibition with the gallery. In the exhibition Gestures Adrian Paci continues his interest in symbolic and cultural rites. Paci often focuses on brief glimpses of everyday gestures that occur during ritualistic festivities. He renders these moments ambiguous, abstract, and open to universal readings. In a new departure from his previous work, Paci plays with the painterly possibility of video while also bringing a cinematographic approach to his paintings. The show comprises two video installations-_Britma_ and Last Gestures-four photographic light boxes, a large-scale painting on wood entitled Passages, a diptych painted on bricks, and several works on paper. The large-scale painting, Passages, takes the ritual of handshaking (such as at funerals or weddings) as a starting point. Paci translates the repetitiveness of this gesture by following the shape of its painterly support: a nearly seven and a half foot tall wooden cable wheel. The circular continuity of numerous shaking hands emphasizes the cinematographic effect of the work. (Image: Adrian Paci, Kiss, 2008, Digital C-Print mounted on Sintra, 30 × 40 inches, Edition of 6.
