190514 : Galerie Isabella Bortolozzi / Eden Eden Seth Price

Galerie Isabella Bortolozzi / Eden Eden Seth Price 30.04.2014 – 30.06.2014 More information – less meaning By Thomas Kuhn When one opens a letter, the envelope often has a pattern on the inside of it. A generic pattern that sometimes reflects a connection with the sender. It's a message beyond the actual message for which the envelope is not more or not less than the capsule. In his exhibition in the new rooms of Isabella Bortolozzi, such envelopes mark the new paintings by Seth Price (*1973 in East Jerusalem). Enlarged on rough wood, without addresses, they pose the question of who sent a message to whom. In case it should be news from the present to the past, then it's that which, in the East European context is – not without reason – still described as post moderne, which, in Seth Price’s works orientates towards the history of the paintings, and here, particularly, seizing upon the quodlibet, a variant of the trompe-l’œil. In revised, contemporary style of the Dutch baroque painting of the 17th century, the artist who lives in New York, pins his enlarged envelopes onto vertical format boards and combines painting and collage in an illustrative style. With his pictures, Seth Price writes a meaningful and revealing conception of that simulacrum which Jean Baudrillard encompasses in his texts: we live in a world with more information and evermore less meaning … letters without content and without addressee … Galerie Isabella Bortolozzi / Eden Eden 10783 Berlin, Bülowstraße 74 Tel: +49 30??26 39 49 85 E-mail: info@bortolozzi.com http://eden-eden.com/ Opening hours: Sat 12-18 hours
