Paris London Hong Kong \;i s pleased to present \;Dreamer Gets Another Dream\, an exhibit ion of recent works on paper and sculpture by Wyatt Grant. The show opens o n January 30th \;and continues until March 7th.\n

In \;Dreamer Gets Another Drea m\, Wyatt Grant assembles a collection of recent work revealing influe nces from stories\, cultural relics and everyday experiences. In a project that includes complex paper works and sculpture\, he creates an assorted ca st of characters &mdash\; both figurative and other &mdash\; that form the basis for intricate vignettes. The terms are written here in several ways. Using dioramas\, pictorial narratives and abstraction\, the project establi shes an unlikely and mysterious mythology. Engaging in themes of displaceme nt\, humor\, frustration and the supernatural\, Grant exposes an interior s tate for each element of the installation.

\n

The material nature of the work in this show expresses Wyatt Grant&rs quo\;s active studio practice. Roughly assembled geometric compositions\, s tacks of collages\, an inventory of preliminary studies and experimental ob jects are linked together thematically. There is an amorphous relationship between the parts and the whole\; bonds are formed through visual and struc tural links. Those isolated figures that remain act as monoliths to create a divide between what populates a dream and how we ascribe its meaning.

\n

 \;  \;  \;  \; &nbs p\; Dreamer Gets Another Dream \;works feels like a theater set po pulated by a peculiar group of actors. The compelling narrative that unfold s comes to us through inference and allusion.

\n

Wyatt Grant received his BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011 with an emphasis in fiber and material studies. Based in Chicago\, he has exhibited with LVL3\, Autumn Space\, HungryMan Gallery an d the West Pilsen Sculpture Garden\, among others. He is the founder of the Chicago band Pool Holograph and frequently produces posters\, album covers \, and murals for a variety of clients.Dreamer Gets Another Dream& nbsp\;is his first solo gallery exhibition.

Document is pleased to present Geiger/Welsh a selection of works by Marcus Geiger (Vienna) and Margaret W elsh (Chicago). The exhibition is the first in a planned series of exhibiti ons (organized by Michael Hall and Aron Gent) inviting both local and inter national artists to work on an exhibition and collaborate with the producti on side and services that Document offers.

\n

The main Geiger work on view is a sculpture that functions somewhere between a model and physical architecture. Six identical 4&rsquo\; x 8&rsqu o\; panels that can be assembled and re-assembled into various objects or b uildings\, originally the object was designed in the 90&rsquo\;s to present smaller works\, something between a shelf and a wall.

\n

Geiger&rsquo\;s approach to the gallery space is more und erstandable when you learn that he studied stage design (1978-82) at the Ac ademy of Fine Arts in Vienna where his classmates were Peter Kogler and Hei mo Zobernig and he has often collaborated with Kogler and Franz West. What all these artists have in common is a particular &lsquo\;Viennese&rsquo\; a pproach to art and design\, seeing all things as equal and making no partic ular valuations between a painting and a chair\, a carpet or a sculpture. T he room itself should be used and activated\, not just peered into like a c anvas. Known as an &ldquo\;artist&rsquo\;s artist\,&rdquo\; especially in t oday&rsquo\;s hyper art market\, Geiger&rsquo\;s approach appears aloof and he is known to rarely accept general invitations to present his works at g alleries or museums\, questioning the value of his own artistic production and its reception.

\n

Margaret Welsh was considered an up-and-coming Chicago artist in the late 90s receiving press for her installations and photo/video work in Artforum\, Flash Art\, The N ew York Times\, New Art Examiner and many others\, until she suddenly stopp ed producing and exhibiting. More than a decade later Welsh has started on a new series of works connecting back to the work she made before her Pop A rt influenced installations. The Welsh works on view explore the physical u nfolding and refolding of paper shopping bags\, creating readymade forms th at often repeat or are variations of one another. Once settling on a pair o f shapes she applies layers of house paint picked up at her local home impr ovement center. Welsh uses Mistints and rejects from the discount paint bin \, painting her found shapes with found colors to create unique object/imag es out of everyday discarded materials.

\n

Welsh&rsquo\;s works ultimately bounce between the dualities of painting and sculpture\, the expressive and the formal\, the symbolic and the liter al\, and nonsense and meaning. The works deconstruct a structure used to sa fely transport our belongings (paper bags) and Welsh physically manipulates the bags to create geometric compositions out of these discarded readymade s. The works offer up humility by using what the artist refers to as &ldquo \;oops&rdquo\; colors that lay unclaimed at the reject colors shelf in the paint department. However\, Welsh chooses to cover the entire surface of th e bags without the hint of gesture\, and in doing so they retain a certain boldness as the works float on the gallery walls.
