Praxis is pleased to present Saturn, the solo exhibition by Josemiel Platz (b.1982, Tucuman, Argentina).
A reception to celebrate the opening of the show will be held at our new space on 501 W 20th St., NY, NY
10011, on Thursday, March 1st, 2018, from 6 to 8 pm.
Platz’s art revolves around the creation and destruction of spaces as a means of rebellion against that
which is set, as a way of underscoring transformation and natural changes.
Each present state holds in it what happened before, earlier traits and experiences, in a sense of
endlessness and no return.
The abstract is, for him, a way of reflecting universality, a labyrinth with many ways-in and no certain
outcome. A constantly shifting dance.
Space and the body are the structuring vectors; the tension between surface and figure, the gravitational,
rejection of space and loss of balance connect to the spiritual in a proposal where alchemy and creativity
meet to generate art.
A fractal of the relationship between the being and that which holds it up.
Enigmatic maps that do what they can to sustain the experience of life.
Structures whose order and reason is present in everything manifested.
Systems that limit us and make us see how narrow the real is.
Fertile thresholds of new cycles of awareness.
Steps towards the great work of alchemy, the encounter with purity.
Evolution as the end of everything created.
Praxis was founded in 1977. With locations in New York and Buenos Aires, our mission is to bring the
compelling creativity and imagination of Latin American contemporary art forward to a worldwide audience.
