PAUL SCHÜTZE: AIR INTO LIGHT
Maggs Bros., 50 Hays Mews, London W1J 5QJ.
Monday 12th March – Saturday 17th March 2012.
Private view: Tuesday 13th March, 6-8pm.
Skulls, typewriters, frozen ink, dissolving flowers and smoke are just some of the images which collide in ‘Air Into Light’ – a pop-up photographic exhibition by the artist and musician, Paul Schütze (b. 1958, Australia).
Designed to offer works at affordable prices in a pop-up context, the show features 18 photo manipulations each one reflecting a musical work from Schütze’s 25-year catalogue.
Provocative and compelling, the images are in essence photographic ‘re-mixes’. An eclectic mix of the dark and mechanistic, the exquisitely minimal and the kitschy vivid they are beguiling visual hybrids which attempt to capture the abstract and the elusive.
The show will also feature a constant mix of the sound works illustrated in the images plus a specially chosen perfume from Frederic Malle will complete the environment.
London based Schütze who works in sound, video and photography has
exhibited at major galleries and museums around the world including: The Hayward, The Royal Academy, Reina Sophia, IVAM and the British Museum. He has also collaborated with artists including James Turrell, Josiah McElheny and Isaac Julien.
Schütze works with Alan Cristea Gallery in London and Gallery Pilar Serra in Madrid.
The Maggs Pop-Up Gallery is open Monday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm. For further information and images from the show please contact Chris Rickwood on +44 (0)7775 945 913 email@example.com
