ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 Igor Eskinja - Galerie Alberta Pane - October 20th - December 3rd <p>Alberta Pane gallery is delighted to present the first solo exhibition of the croatian artist Igor E&scaron;kinja in her new space located <strong>47 rue de Montmorency &agrave; Paris</strong>.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Exhibition <em>Contracts</em> presents a series of new works (photography and installation) that are exploring the multiple positions of an artwork between materiality and abstraction. Image become a form where different parties meet in a paradoxical and complex way.</p> <p><em>Contract</em> presume some intent, it starts from a need to enter in relation and recognize the other. It is also a promise that seeks to project relations in the future.</p> <p>In this exhibition, <em>Contract</em> become a metaphor for constant transformation of&nbsp; materiality into abstraction and contrary in a set of non linear steps.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Igor E&scaron;kinja constructs his architectonics of perception as ensembles of modesty and elegance. The artist &ldquo;performs&rdquo; the objects and situations, catching them in their intimate and silent transition from two-dimensional to three-dimensional formal appearance. Using simple, inexpensive materials, such as adhesive tape or electric cables and unraveling them with extreme precision and mathematical exactitude within strict spatial parameters, E&scaron;kinja defines another quality that goes beyond physical aspects and enters the registers of the imaginative and the imperceptible.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> <p><em>Igor E&scaron;kinja (b. 1975, Rijeka, Croatia) studied painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice.
