Aires de Gameiro
The Switch’s presents “PARALLAX” by Portuguese Artist Aires de Gameiro, curated by gallery assistant, Henrique Menezes. From July 7th until July 23rd 2017, Aires de Gameiro will reveal an installation specially conceived for Cabinet de L’Art – the gallery’s front room. Expanding the geometrical essence of his work, three sculptures and a series of paintings are conceptually and physically blended, borrowing the individualities of each technique through hybrid perceptions.
The term “parallax” refers to the way an object's position or direction seems to change depending on its viewing angle. This apparent displacement has been used in distinct domains of knowledge such as astrology, philosophy, linguistic to web design, as well as psychoanalysis and photography.
In “PARALLAX”, Aires de Gameiro reveals his quest for the objects’ inner strength and visual esthetics. By rearranging processes, the Artist creates a set of pictorial and tridimensional works in a mutual reflection: the genesis of one is the essence of the other. In this expanded field, the Artist materializes the intersecting zone of contours and volumes. The presented abstract paintings carry an illusion of space behind the literal plane; intimately related with the sculptures as spatial expansions. Aires de Gameiro presents a sharp and precise exhibition, in which compositional relations empower sensory experiences on the beholder.
“PARALLAX” opens on Friday 7th July 2017, from 7pm to 11pm, and will be on view until July 23rd at The Switch.
Open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 3pm-7pm or by appointment throughout the rest of the week.
The Switch is an Artist-Run gallery created by Skoya Assemat-Tessandier and was born with the vocation to present emerging talents in frequent exhibitions. Until the end of the year, The Switch’s program will present group and solo shows by Artists Sébastien Zanella, and Hugo Cantegrel, among others.
