Clement Valla : “Wrapped terracotta neck-amphora”

Clement Valla : Wrapped terracotta neck amphora storage jar

“Wrapped terracotta neck-amphora (storage jar)”
by Clement Valla

Wrapped Terracotta neck-amphora (storage jar) is a sculpture that is neither an object nor an image. Valla used digital 3D capture to reproduce a 7th Century BC Greek amphora on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. To highlight the artifacts produced by computer vision the completed reproduction is broken down into its constituent parts: a flat image wrapped around a 3D volume. The resulting sculpture echoes the packing of objects for storage and shipping, transitory moments when only an object’s image is accessible. The image ends up serving as surrogate for the sculpture underneath.”

Jaime Davidovich: “Outreach 1974–1984” at Threewalls

JAIME-DAVIDOVICH-AND-LATHAM-ZEARFOSS-THREEWALLS-CHICAGO

“Jaime Davidovich: Outreach 1974–1984”
Opening Reception: Jaime Davidovich and Latham Zearfoss
Friday 01/23/2015, 6-9 PM at Threewalls
119 N. Peoria, #2C, Chicago, IL 60607

“Join us in the gallery for an opening reception for Jaime Davidovich: Outreach 1974-1984, the first solo exhibition in Chicago of video and television works by the pioneering Argentine artist Jaime Davidovich, curated by Daniel Quiles. The exhibition examines the dynamic ten-year period in which Davidovich transitioned from formalist experiments with installation and video to the production of public-access cable television programs.

In the Project Room, as part of Threewalls’ SOLO exhibition program, Chicago-based artist Latham Zearfoss has created an immersive sound installation titled Yes x 1000. A layered, echoing series of recordings of the word “yes,” his piece explores rituals of affirmation, addresses ways in which interconnected online platforms create realms of easy approval and validation, while also sometimes–paradoxically–reinforcing isolation.”
