2010 Winter Salon – In Synthesis
Björn Ressle Art Project is pleased to present the 2010 Winter Salon – In Synthesis, a presentation of over sixty contemporary artists designed to generate fresh creative energy through unexpected juxtapositions by giving viewers access to past pivotal artistic ideas and newer talent.
Following the history of the first Winter Salon in 2008, the show pays tribute to the format of a salon hanging and celebrates the tradition that has continuously rendered expositions of large numbers of artists and even larger numbers of works. The show intends to provide patrons of the arts with an inviting, intimate viewing experience to initiate conversation.
By utilizing the maximum floor-to-ceiling gallery space, the 2010 Winter Salon enlivens the wall with artworks in various mediums by artists who each bring a unique perspective to the show. International, established, innovative and emergent artists have contributed a body of over one hundred fifty pieces of art reflecting an immense range of theories, generations, styles and talents.
To highlight the drive of young talent in the show, Ok Hyun Ahn’s new video and photographic series are on display in the project room. In Ok Hyun’s highly expressive video, Ma Non Troppo (But Not Too Much), 2010, bits of humor are skillfully intertwined into a dramatic sequence through the use of ephemeral stereotypes in today’s media. Her series of intimate photographs of people crying are framed to give a greater spatial isolation of each person and subtly guide our attention to their tears. A slight confusion between real versus stages is successfully captured in the frame.
The 2010 Winter Salon – In Synthesis will be on display at Elga Wimmer PCC at 526 West 26th Street #310 from December 11, 2010 to January 22, 2011, and is open Tuesday through Saturday 11am until 6pm.
