May 24th – June 28th, 2014
Praz-Delavallade will be presenting the fourth solo exhibition of Los Angeles and New York-based artist Analia Saban from May 24th until June 28th, 2014. Over the last ten years, Analia Saban has been interested in deconstructive processes. By exposing process and materials, and by dismantling artworks of various media to later reassemble them in unconventional ways, the artist reveals the artwork’s existence as both a physical and a social construction.
Titled Outburst, this new exhibition juxtaposes two new bodies of work pursuing similar concerns. The Big Bang Series (in Ten Steps), a piece in concrete and marble on canvas, references the explosion and expansion of the universe, while the ensemble of eight one-point-perspective laser-sculpted graphite drawings, Outburst (Living Room), emphasize the emotional outbursts that could happen within the domestic space. While the use and showcasing of perspectival lines accentuate the presence of the vanishing point and clearly link the two bodies of work, there is also an evident contrast between the toughness and heaviness of the concrete works and the fragility of the laser-burned paper.
