Experimentation and materiality are at the core of Analia Saban’s practice. By pushing the boundaries of media, she approaches fundamental questions regarding the nature of art, images, objects, and space. In the editioned works on view this spring, Saban toys with our expectations as viewers: incisive, minimal works flout the conventions of editioning, often slipping from the two-dimensional picture plane to the realm of objects.
The works on view at Talley Dunn Gallery directly connect to Saban’s ongoing explorations of materiality in art. In raising important questions about illusionistic space, objecthood, and the ever-elusive “original”, Saban’s multiples expand our understanding of reality as a concept. These works prompt a renewed examination of ourselves and our relationship to physical, temporal, and virtual surroundings.
As an element of Antidote, Talley Dunn Gallery’s spring exhibition program, Analia Saban offers the opportunity to reconsider contemporary art and its power to shift perspectives and change the way we experience the world. Further, the exhibition will be in complementary dialogue with fresh, which celebrates the unique power and possibilities of editioned works.
Opening reception: Thursday, April 11, 6 - 8 p.m., Exhibition on display through June 1, 2019.
