FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION ONLY Filippo Sciascia
JULY 16 - AUGUST 16
SOLO EXHIBITION BY FILIPPO SCIASCIA
Gaya Fusion is proud to present the opening of ?For Your Consideration Only?, a solo exhibition by native Italian artist Filippo Sciascia. The opening will be on July 16th, 2005 at 7 pm.
The exhibition will feature the artist?s new video and paintings. In his trade mark approach, Filippo Sciascia creates video-realistic oil paintings which he appropriates from stills of his own video art. Inversely, some of the images are deliberately altered in color or visual effect via the painting process, only to inspire changes in the original video image. Finally, the finished paintings appear in the final version of video, which gives the video camera the added role of ?viewer?. This interaction of the artist, video camera and audience, evokes the relativity of roles and shows the analogies between man and man-made technology.
The 45 minute video ?For Your Consideration Only? is a parody about the journeys (physical or other) we make in life and the space (physical or other) we find ourselves in while getting to our destination. Looking back at those journeys and spaces is the ?consideration? in title of this exhibition.
This is the second body of work in Filippo Sciascia?s ?video painting? series. The first was the critically acclaimed ?video painting: Kadek?, which went on tour and was featured at the prestigious CP Open Biennale, Jakarta.
The exhibition runs until August 16th, 2005.
