Alexandra Gorczynski: TRUISMS
Saturday, 16 March 2013
March 16 â€“ April 6
ALEXANDRA GORCZYNSKI ::: TRUISMS
Opening Saturday March 16, 6 PM
Truisms is a solo exhibition that lays bare an elemental indulgence in technology. Through a series work about the sincerity and simplicity of digital tools, Alexandra shares a personal look at the metaphors inherent in a networked life.
This show marks the opening exhibition of Transfer, a new exhibition space located in Brooklyn, NY. The selection of Gorczynski to launch the space speaks to our interest in the friction between digital practice and its physical expression â€” a dichotomy that Alexandra explores by pushing against the boundaries of public and private space. Her deeply personal yet humorously self-evident â€˜Truismsâ€™ have been collected and expanded into a new body of work for her first solo exhibition, which includes multi-media works, video/sculptural objects, paper-based works and paintings.
ALEXANDRA GORCZYNSKI is a new media artist whose striking work takes an intimate look at her relationship to networked and personal space. She is based in NYC, having just returned from a residency at Quartier21 in Vienna. Most recently, her work was featured in Art Hack Day: God Mode at 319 Scholes in Brooklyn. She has also shown at Little Berlin, Spark Contemporary Art Space, Spectacle Theater NYC, Portland Art Museum, The Future Gallery, Eyebeam, and Vox Populi, among other venues.
TRANSFER is an exhibition space that explores the friction between digital practice and its physical instantiation. Co-directed by independent curator Kelani Nichole and Jereme Mongeon, the space features solo shows by emerging and established artists. Transfer supports artists working with digital practice to realize aggressive installation and promote collection of their work.
Opening reception Saturday March 16, 6 PM
