Les galeries Studio XX et Width:700px juxtaposent leurs espaces réels et virtuels pour mettre en scène un stratagème artificieux, à la fois habile et grossier, qui condamnera l’attention du spectateur à de nouvelles problématiques.

L’infini virtuel, réduit à occuper les contenants qu’on lui impose, devient soudainement envahissant dans le contexte de l’exposition. Il force les oeuvres tangibles à se réunir stratégiquement pour préserver leur impact. Dans son assemblage littéraire, ce concentré d’objets et d’images corrompus présente un univers trafiqué, dérivé du quotidien. Cette rupture spatio-temporelle et cette surimpression des lieux donnent à l’espace physique un caractère obsolète, figé dans le temps.

Sans feu ni lieu
Sans foi ni loi
Une contrefaçon, un subterfuge, un amas d’artefacts forcés à l’itinérance.


Virtual gallery Width;700px and the actual Studio XX juxtapose their spaces to implement a cunning ploy, in an adroit and boorish manner, that will condemn the viewer to new issues.

The virtual infinite, shrunken to imposed containers, suddenly becomes invasive in the exhibit context. It forces the actual artworks to backup and strategically reunite to preserve their impact. In its literary assemblage, these corrupted images and objects present a tampered universe, derived from quotidian. The spatiotemporal breakage, along with the overprinted galleries give an obsolete feel to the physical space, frozen in time.

Sans feu ni lieu
Sans foi ni loi
A counterfeit, a subterfuge, a cluster of artifacts condemned to wandering.


Installation Views V ~ Sherwin Tivera Tibayan ~ Width: 700px; Gallery

Sherwin Rivera Tibayan

opening September 26th 2013

Sherwin Rivera Tibayan (Subic Bay, Philippines, 1982) is an artist whose projects address digital culture and its documentary relationship with the history of images. He is currently a PhD student in American Studies at the University of Texas, Austin.

Installation Views V is an ongoing project by Tibayan, which examines digital representation of gallery space and the artwork installed within. This installment of the project comes to Width: 700px; to consider the lack of free 'space' within the online gallery. Tibayan generates work that both deconstructs and caters to the specific environment in which it might be showcased. Both contextually and visually, the artwork is made as a reaction to the gallery, suggesting the confinement and rigidity of traditional exhibition space. The works presented are a series of sequential fragmented animations that suggest the white sterile walls, strict geometric lines, and rigid boundaries of the "white cube", reflecting its textures but also implying non existent dimensions via imaginary floor plans. The space in which the work exists—physical or otherwise—is as crucial to the art as the artist themself, directing the viewer to process the works in a certain manner.
