Marco Breuer – Part_Of_Parts

The Von Lintel Gallery has moved to a new location at 520 W. 23rd Street. “Part_of_Parts”, new photography from Marco Breuer should initiate the space in fine fashion.

Breuer bares photographic paper to light in different ways. Five separate methods of exposure are highlighted in this exhibition. There is a directness of expression displayed here that is often overlooked in traditional photography. Much of this work is a positive extension on the photograms first made prominent in the 1920’s by Dada master Man Ray.

The paper has been scratched, succumbed to flash bulbs, submitted to a modified turntable of the artist’s design and yes, even shot. For the “Shot” pieces, Breuer left the light sensitive paper in the box and took aim with a 12-gauge shotgun thus converting the lightproof box into his camera.
