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.
Marco Breuer, Motion (C-922), 2009.
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.
Marco Breuer, Throw (C-869), 2008.
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.
