curated by linearossa

".No" Gallery, 251 East Houston Street, Manhattan, New York.

Da Venerdi' 8 al 31 Luglio 2011

Contemporary Alchemy, or the relations between humans and nature indaga le relazioni tra uomo e natura partendo dagli antichi rituali per approdare ai recenti studi della NASA sulle piante in grado di purificare l'aria all'interno delle basi spaziali. L'articolato percorso artistico-scientifico di Andreco ricontestualizza il rapporto tra spazio, tempo e azione attraverso la ricodificazione di processi naturali che rappresentano una nuova forma di alchimia. La mostra includerà installazioni, video e disegni.

"Contemporary Alchemy, or the relations between humans and nature" sheds light on the connection between man and nature. the artist draws from his scientific background in the artwork, creating an unexpected universe. he begins with an exploration of ancient tribal rituals, and ends with a discussion of NASA research on plants that are capable of filtering air in space stations. andreco’s work symbolizes a new concept of ritual based on exchanges of substances. this contemporary alchemy gives us a map to reconfigure the relationship with our time, space and actions both at a metaphorical and practical level. it does so by decoding and utilizing such natural processes to transform harmful substances generated from human activities.
