The 2010 Winter Salon - In Synthesis

 

December 11th 2010 through January 22nd 2011
Curated by Björn Ressle and Hee Yuen Chun
 
Location:
Elga Wimmer PCC, 526 West 26 street, #310, New York, NY 10001Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11am until 6pm.
 
Björn Ressle Art Project is pleased to present 2010 Winter Salon – In Synthesis, an exhibition of over fifty selected artists. Inspired by salon-style hanging, most commonly attributed to the Salon de Paris held during the 18th and 19th centuries, the show intends to provide patrons of the arts with an inviting, intimate viewing experience to initiate a dialogue between artists, their work and the viewer. Following the interactive installation of the 2008 Winter Salon at Björn Ressle Gallery, this show pays tribute to the format of a salon hanging and celebrates the tradition that continues to render expositions of a large numbers of artists and an even larger numbers of works.
 
By utilizing the maximum floor-to-ceiling gallery space, The 2010 Winter Salon activates the wall with artworks in various media by artists, each of whom offer a unique perspective to the show. Established, innovative and emerging artists have contributed a body of nearly one hundred fifty works of art reflecting an impressive range of theories, generations, styles and distinctive visual expression.
 
In order to synthesize numerous languages spoken through various artistic disciplines, the two long walls in parallel are carefully installed to create dialogue in the spatial order. The 2010 Winter Salon – In Synthesis allows the viewer access to some of the past and current pivotal artistic ideas while introducing newer talent, to generate fresh creative energy through unexpected juxtapositions.

Highlighting the drive of young talents; Ok Hyun Ahn’s new video and photographic series are on display in the project room. In Ok Hyun’s highly expressive video, Ma Non Troppo (But Not Too Much), 2010, bits of humor are skillfully intertwined into a dramatic sequence through the use of ephemeral stereotypes in today’s media. Her series of intimate photographs of people crying are framed to give a greater spatial isolation of each person and subtly guide our attention to their tears. A slight confusion between real versus stages is successfully captured in the frame.
