TRANSFER is pleased to present a solo exhibition from Clement Valla
::: Opening Reception ::: SATURDAY april 19 ::: from 7-11PM :::
Surface Survey is a new solo exhibition by Clement Valla, comprised of digital prints and 3D printed sculptures that are structured around concepts of archaeology, computer software, meaning-making, and images that are not meant for human consumption.
The subjects are varied: from sculptural antiquities he photographed in the Metropolitan Museum's collections, to contemporary ephemera, to 19th Century inventions. The work uncovers subtle shapes and textures that illustrate these objects in unexpected ways and cast a new light the algorithms that digitized them.
