Comunicato stampa

Federica Schiavo Gallery è lieta di annunciare che l'artista americano Karthik Pandian ha realizzato nuove opere con polvere di marmo, resina, rose, un pene di ceramica, gesso, silicone, cera di fonderia, cartone, carta, bronzo, film in 16mm, video HD, CGI, plasma, elettricità, un midollo spinale e fotografia digitale. A cosa stava pensando?

Karthik Pandian lavora con immagini in movimento e scultura. Il suo processo creativo è definito da un particolare approccio alla visione: come riconoscere il gioco del tempo, del lavoro e il significato delle cose

L’artista trasforma i materiali e dispone oggetti, apparentemente disparati, per rendere tale gioco ancora più evidente.


Karthik Pandian ha esposto in mostre personali al Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; al Bétonsalon, Parigi; al Midway Contemporary Art, Minneapolis e al White Flag Projects, St. Louis. Il suo lavoro è stato inoltre presentato nell’edizione inaugurale della LA Biennial al Hammer Museum, alla Triennale: Intense Proximity al Palais de Tokyo, Parigi e in mostre collettive come Film As Sculpture presso il Wiels Contemporary Art Centre, Bruxelles, Repertory al Palazzo Cavour, Torino e alla quarta edizione della Marrakech Biennale.

Snails and Oysters è la prima mostra personale di Pandian in Italia. Questo autunno il suo lavoro sarà presentato nella sezione Present Future di Artissima.



PRESS RELEASE

OPENING RECEPTION, THURSDAY 25 SEPTEMBER, 7.00 – 9.00 PM

FEDERICA SCHIAVO GALLERY
PIAZZA DI MONTEVECCHIO 16 ROME


Federica Schiavo Gallery is pleased to announce that American artist Karthik Pandian has released new works. He made them from marble dust, resin, roses, a ceramic penis, plaster, silicone, foundry wax, cardboard, paper, bronze, 16mm film, HD video, CGI, plasma, electricity, a spinal cord and digital photography. What was he thinking?

Karthik Pandian makes works in moving image and sculpture. His process is defined by a particular approach to vision: how to recognize the play of time, labor, and meaning in things. He transforms material and arranges seemingly disparate objects to render that play more visible.


Karthik Pandian has held solo exhibitions at The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Bétonsalon, Paris; Midway Contemporary Art, Minneapolis and White Flag Projects, St. Louis amongst others. His work was featured in the inaugural LA Biennial at the Hammer Museum and La Triennale: Intense Proximity at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris as well as in group exhibitions such as Film as Sculpture at Wiels Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels, Repertory at the Palazzo Cavour, Torino and the 4th Marrakech Biennale.

Snails and Oysters is Pandian’s first solo exhibition in Italy. This fall his work will be featured in the Present Future sector of Artissima.
