Unfolding Marco Maggi
Josée Bienvenu Gallery, New York [link]
September 10 – October 24, 2015
Entering the work of Marco Maggi is not too unlike the dichotomous trajectory of a Zeno’s paradox where the elusive sight of knowledge always lies half a step ahead. The intriguing force of the granulated opalescent field that draws the gaze to its orbit is as though the intricate construction of signs that inscribe the space they inhabit, are the molecular building blocks of some gigantic meta-language; the pencils like the needles of a seismograph machine are there to record the slightest slippages and we’re brought in to witness the immaculate silence of language before it erupts into a scream.
