Christopher Grimes Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle. The exh ibition will run from September 7 - October 27\, 2012. The opening reception will be held Friday\, September 7\, from 7:00 — 9:00 p.m.

Formall y seductive\, technologically sophisticated and conceptually rigorous\, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle’s works make the intangible tangible and challenge our notions of the political and th e cultural. In his forthcoming exhibition at Christopher Grimes Gallery\, Manglano-Ovalle will premiere three distinct new bodies of work that ex plore the permeability and sustainability of the atmosphere from multiple perspectives.

\n

In the main gallery Manglano-Ovalle will present an installation of fabricated Langstroth move able beehives. A simultaneous nod t o the principle aesthetics of Minimalism and the Duchampian ready-made\, th e pristine white serial structures double as fully functional beehives when taken outside the gallery context. Coinciding with the beehives will be a mass of anodized aluminum\, representing a physical rendering made fro m scientific data collected on the a steroid Apophis. Originally predicted to hit Earth in 2029\, the flight of A pophis reflects
a tenuous exis tence comprised of possibilities and probabilities.

\n

The 1926-1928 legal contestation over the categorization of Constantin Brancusi’s Bird in S pace as a manufactured metal o bject and not a work of art delayed the object's entry into the county for exhibition. In the south gallery\, Manglano-Ovalle’s own investigation of modemism’s re-entry into modemity ma nifests itself though his presentat ion of a full-scale reproduction — in aluminum and steel — of Brancusi’s Bird in Space. Work ing in collaboration with engineers from the US Air Force Hypervelocity Tes ting facilities\, Manlano-Ovalle su bjected his sculpture to a Mach-14 wind tunnel and captured the dynamics of high-speed flight through documenta ry photographs.
