GEORGE SPICA – Tue 26 July, 19.00-21.00 in the Freezer
My name is George Spica, an American artist working in sculpture, installation, and performance. My work is concerned with the performative potential of the body, as well as, more recently, synthetic projections of that potential through geographical space. I find industry to be an incredibly beautiful and straightforward way of looking at the physical expressions, and desires, of the human body. By this notion, my practice aims to elucidate the romance present in mechanics and functional aesthetics by creating distilled, protracted experiences thereof.
Tuesday night’s show in the Nes Freezer (7-9pm) will be an installation comprising various sculptures and digital video projections, all works made during my time at the Nes Residency. Each work was made in relation to the next; the products of an ongoing practice exploring the romantic qualities of industrial materials. The pieces on display are, in a broad sense, material compositions belonging to many industrial and mechanical lineages brought into the context of a gallery for the sake of examining physical desire through objective analysis.
