3D

Group Show curated by Mark Fletcher

June 5 - August 1, 2003

537 W 22nd Street

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Opening Reception: June 5, 6-8 pm

Friedrich Petzel Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of 3D, the third in a series of exhibitions curated by Mark Fletcher.

3D is an investigation into the three-dimensional contemporary art making practice that has evolved with a world of ever increasing fragmented sensory perceptions. Largely but not exclusively sculptural, the exhibition actively addresses three-dimensional concerns, which are sometimes realized in a two-dimensional format, as well as the implied space located between these two realms.

The exhibition features recently realized works by artists who use traditional and non-traditional approaches to exploring the third dimension. Through the more typical practice of painting and sculpture to the use of refracted light and architectural intervention, a psychoactive sensibility to manipulate our notions of reality and perception of space emerges. It allows a momentary lapse into our individual invented landscape of alternative 'dimensional' experiences and thus a welcome liberation from our normal reality of the physical form.

3D will include works by the following internationally recognized artists.

Martin Boyce, Loris Cecchini, Liz Craft, Rachel Feinstein, Liam Gillick, Katharina Grosse, Sarah Morris, Eva Rothschild and Pae White.
