A Group Exhibition
Feb 3 – Mar 25, 2012
curated by Chiharu Aizawa
AG Gallery/About Glamour in Williamsburg is pleased to present a group exhibition, “PLANE & SOLID,” by emerging artists Denis Andernach, Lynsey Hunter, Jason Kachadourian, Virginia Kraljevic, Ben and Sebastian, and Nicolas and Sofie.
All the works on this exhibition have in it some of the elements of “Architecture” in different ways. Even before we discovered the beauty of architecture and started to studying and experimenting it as an academic topic or media of art, humanity have been trying to create tons of architectural designs in different shapes and materials for its purpose of use and intellectual climate.
Also, architecture have always been considered a part of landscapes and one of major subjects for artworks. Because architecture has both aspects as being an artwork itself and a subject for artwork, also naturally it has phases from 2D image on blue print to 3D structure when it built, the works selected for this exhibition have a variety of media and shapes from plane to solid.
