Five Easy Pieces
Jan 31 – Mar 16, 2024
Croy Nielsen
Wien, Austria

Time is sentient in Five Easy Pieces. Wrapped in their ardent and solemn thoughts these three artists say no more than is necessary. They speak a laconic visual language, for these inductive states are a feeling and a gesture marked by the implacable need to express the presence of a state of being, for a form cannot measure, nor words define the vastness of the ineffable.

In their delicate sensorial moulding of disparate materials, the shrill cry of ghostly vestiges can be felt. In the fierce and rugged forms we feel the still murmur in the limb of life. Each object contains the minutest details of the permanent and fixed, nothing more, nothing less. Where entropy and destruction reigns in the world at-large, the exhibtion contrasts the hurly-burly spectacle of media with a contemplative, and subdued glow.

For the rudiments of scale, proportion, and refinement, reinforces the tenets of a tattered modernity. Tattered, though not broken, things go back to basics. The structures remain sound, the criteria are a constant.

[ . . . ]

At this interval of the ages, some will say that the ground has shifted; against the backdrop of ruinous suppositions and techno Babylon, the wild has won. In fact, as we speak, the new is being terra formed. Out of old things the reclamation project hath begun, and shorn its old skin from the fruit of the living. The tide has turned into finer grades of atmosphere of inestimable value. Life is worth living.

  • Grey Crawford. Chroma, 1978–85, Vol 1
    Publication
    Beam Editions
    International

    In 1978 Grey Crawford created a body of colour photographic work that was so radical in its aesthetic and technique that few people to this day understand how it was made. Chroma documents late 70s Los Angeles in a period of radical urban transformation. Scenes of vernacular architecture, demolition sites and everyday places are contrasted with graphic forms that float on the surface and sit within the image. (more…)
