INDIVISIBILIS


Indivisibilis
December 02, 2009
6-9PM

Drawn to breaking things down, cutting things in half and splitting things in two, Pastrana’s latest work extends itself beyond a mere division of objects to its material origins and its source. ‘Indivisibilis’ is more a reflection on a material’s transformative phases and an investigation into what is borne out of a sudden space that was once whole.

“In each process, there is a certain loss. Some parts of the whole will no longer be there even if the source objects are rebuilt,” says Pastrana. In his latest work, the artist attempts to address this transformative loss by using material (sawdust) from “Stream” and turning it into a disc record in “Record.”

‘Indivisibilis’ examines how a material’s function and meaning are altered after each process: a boat becomes pieces of scrap wood; sawdust from the wood is made into a disc record; gold rings are melted into the shape of a sword and used as a cutting instrument – completely changing its original function – only to be returned to their original form.

"Turning the sawdust from one of the works into a disc record allows the sawdust to act as some kind of a document, a record of something that has happened."

‘Indivisibilis’ examines relationships between meaning and material, object and image, names and words, definitions and translations, and the countless intersections in between.

Gary Ross Pastrana’s ‘Indivisibilis’ opens at 6 pm in Slab Gallery on December 2, Wednesday and runs until January 9, Saturday.

‘Indivisibilis’ is shown alongside ‘Grain’ by Rachel Rillo at Silverlens Gallery and ‘Release’ by Isa Lorenzo in 20Square, SLab Gallery.
