Marcius Galan: Line Weight
Galerija Gregor Podnar, Berlin, Berlin, Berlin, 01/21/2017 - 04/22/2017
Galerija Gregor Podnar is pleased to present Line Weight, Marcius Galan’s first solo exhibition in Berlin. The work of the São Paulo-based artist comprises sculptures, objects, drawings and other media, and it engages with the perception of the artwork in both architectural (outer) and poetic (inner) surroundings. It is often geometric objects with clear form language which, in relation to our perception of the commonplaces (lines, dimensions, materiality), demand a definition of space and a classification of visual boundaries. Seemingly value-neutral forms become sensors of our individual perceptiveness.
In the exhibition Line Weight, the works on display all refer to the idea of the line. On the one hand, as a representation of space in geometry, the line intended in its geometric form, on the other hand they also bear concrete references to architectural drawings and dioramas, as simplified implementations of the idea of the construction of space.
Galan’s concrete sculptures also relate to scale-dependent drawings which, when placed in the gallery space, entail the construction of an imaginary space. The boundaries of such constructions are vividly portrayed in poetics, a kind of poetry of drawing.
