ROMAN DEINGRUBER: BELIEVING IS SEEING
selected video works 2002 – present

Exhibition opened May 5 and runs through July 1, 2012
The gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday, 12-6pm

In his first solo exhibition, Czech Republic born visual installation artist, Roman Deingruber, premieres new work alongside single-channel video and installation work from his oeuvre that has been presented in festivals around the world.

Inspired by an early love of painting, his camera acts as a brush capturing the texture and movement of his images. Within the structure of time, Deingruber explores the perceptional drifts between the conscious and unconscious, seen and unseen, personifying a postmodern impressionism. He states, “these pieces become ‘self-portraits‘ or ‘visual studies‘ of oneself searching for identity within the self-universe”. Deingruber’s multi-media installation “monument 4 those who have been killed in ambush” was presented at the 798 Beijing Biennale 2009.

In this exhibit, Deingruber explores the interplay between the conscious and unconscious mind. He questions the role of the artist as subject whilst an ephemeral interplay of light, sound and moving images permeates the senses. This exhibition shows key works, culminating in his latest project “Jumping Out of Self Center“. This piece directly builds on the self-inquisition developed in his 2004 work “Cube“. Now Deingruber attempts to delve more deeply into the personal journey of renewal in “Jumping Out of Self Center”. He simply states, “this piece is a reflection of my state of mind at the moment – an attempt not to be self centered”.

Since exhibiting at the 798 Beijing Biennale 2009, Deingruber has become increasingly concerned with using relatively accessible mediums and found materials to make his pieces. He states, “I’ve rid myself of the idea of needing a huge amount of money to create my work”. Furthermore, he aims to create “something beautiful out of nothing”. Themes include perceiving works as actions or events, ruminations on identity, minimalism versus materiality, re-birth and the contingency of the body.
