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.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.
