January 9 – February 13, 2016
This marks Perzyński’s first solo exhibition at Liliana Bloch Gallery, and offers a rare opportunity to see two major works: TABLE, a large-scale photographic installation, and 32° 47′ 56.6678” N, 96° 50′ 9.5598″ W, a video work shot with an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) directly above the area of the gallery. Significant precursors to these works and the exhibition are Film (1978), Surfaces (1979), From…to (1980), and Forty Evidences (1983).
Perzyński approaches his work as an organism rather than an object. His practice focuses on the question of art’s interdisciplinariness. Drawing on the philosophies of communicative action, social pragmatism, and individual invention, by necessity it embodies and embraces complexity. His recent work concentrates on computational fluid dynamics, and contemporary data collection, retention and visualization, particularly as they pertain to the future’s ecology. He has worked with installation art since 1978, and in 1990 began working with sound, video, sensors and body-based interactivity. For over 35 years, he has produced works that incorporate architectural settings. His work has been presented in Argentina, Brazil, China, Germany, Greece, Israel, the Netherlands, Poland, Thailand, New Zealand, and the United States.
