DESCRIPTION

 

Galerie Steinek is pleased to announce Lapsed Cinematic, a group exhibition of work by Erik Aalto, Martin Murphy and J.D. Walsh, curated by Tony Oursler.

These three artists, while unique in their endeavor to find new meaning in the syntax of installation and moving image are at the forefront of both art and cinema in this „Lapsed Cinematic“ moment. A characteristic that seems to separate them, is their insistence on putting the viewer at the center of the experience. Informed by the hollow promise of blockbuster film, as well as real promise of philosophical and psychological inter-subjectivity, as expounded upon in Lacans theories of “The Gaze“ and Piaget´s theory of “Object Permanence“. The artists are comfortable navigating this subjective hall off mirrors, created by the viewer´s projected desires. These artists are willing to validate this aspect of human nature, thus mining a new paradigm for the moving image. (... by T. Oursler)
