Comb, pour, tighten. Three everyday actions, rendered in formal terms by the three artists with as many everyday materials.
All of the artists choose plastic, a synthetic composite, to create their works for the "Thin three-dimensionality" exhibition.
Layering vividly colored locks of synthetic hair, as if they were veils of oil paint, Hiva Alizadeh (Iran 1989) creates new abstractions. Almost intangible, shimmering and vaporous, his wall-mounted locks emerge from the two- dimensionality of the painted surface.
Guillaume Linard-Osorio (France 1978) also evokes a finer sense of three-dimensionality by dripping colored resin into the paper-thin spaces between sandwiched sheets of glossy polycarbonate, which slides over the inner walls, creating gossamer colored films in some points and accumulating in others. Superimposed on the walls, the polycarbonate sheets (from 4 to 6 mm) form the matrix of more complex sculptural forms and semi-transparent layers.
Michelangelo Penso (Italy 1964) works with fine electrician’s cable ties, choosing milky white ties for the most part, but not exclusively. Penso does nothing unexpected with these ties, he simply closes and tightens them. However, with this simple act he connects them, hundreds of them, creating milky nebulae that in turn form cells made up of infinite bacteria-like strands. Thus, thin, utilitarian ties narrate science through art.
All three artists’ work with lines, fibres or strips, using materials that, when stratified, invoke a rediscovery of meaning. Come closer and deepen your connection with a "Thin Three Dimensionality".
