> DESCRIPTION

Michael Mut Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Maximiliano

Siñani, the artist’s second solo show in New York City. Occupying the entire space by

redefining the intrinsic properties of objects, Maximiliano Siñani, a young Bolivian artist,

plays on the reactions these new objects can generate on the viewer. Through a

thorough recontextualization of the object, a new meaning emerges. In Basketspeck,

the simple but efficient association of a basketball and confetti generates a completely

new game, one that not only implies the ludic aspect of basket ball, but also the

festivity and color of confetti. A video and photography of the ball complements the

rest of the show as a sort of rulebook for the viewers. In the video, Siñani interacts with

his own piece, serving as an initiator to the performance itself.

Influenced in part by the Oruro Carnival in Bolivia, where the intense display of colors

cofounds the participants, Siñani uses the Basketball to spread the confetti around the

gaming area. A speck is a mark as each confetti alters the area onto which they fall.

This redefines the game area itself through the use of a redefined object.
