Press Release

/
Galerie Gilla Loercher is very pleased to present Rosemary Lee´s solo exhibition Stepping into the Impossible starting 8 March 2013.
"Conceiving of thought as aesthetic formation, think a thought connecting all the other thoughts by the navel. Think impossible thoughts which actualize virtualities or forms which rip holes in the fabric of things. Think tiny thoughts which accommodate universes and monumental ones contained within droplets of water. Take physical manifestations to their bitter end, planes portending more than their surface, immaterial transformation, mechanical apparatus, marbling together of dimensions and conceptual structures." (Rosemary Lee)

Stepping into the Impossible brings together works engaging the limits of the impossible: physical embodiments of the infinite, impossible objects, conceptual forms which defy conceptions of what is or is not possible.
Misuse of Media: The Sublime in the Machine, Drawing Machine, a.k.a. "7 supernovas, 7 black holes" is a machine constructed to create supernovas out of black holes, inverting light and darkness, smearing the boundaries. Developed out of the series Misuse of Media, this piece works upon a principle of "creative misuse", inspired by Giorgio Agamben's conception of "liturgy". Adapting and repurposing technological devices to subvert their intended use, these works shift our relationship to media apparatus in search of poetic correlations within the technological.
Mapping the Infinite, an installation of drawings and objects, surveys the shapes and textures of infinity. Working with labyrinthine lines and surfaces which recede beyond the optical plane, regressing infinitely, or otherwise extending beyond their physical embodiment.
Also included in the exhibition is a collection of digital prints (2009-2013), dealing with such unresolved dichotomies as: natural/unnatural, 2d/3d, digital/analog, organic/inorganic, surface/structure, plane/depth, data/noise. These works represent an ongoing inquiry into and experimentation with these concepts, and how they are articulated in the world.
