bruja! BRUJA – Friday July 1st

Al San Valentin image

Al San Valentin is honored to have new work created and displayed at Space 1026. bruja! BRUJA. examines the dualistic nature of opposites. Influenced on personal and artistic levels by the writings of Pema Chödron and Alan Watts, they became interested in the concept of opposites as balanced equals. The result is a collection of work that applies this concept to personal history as it defines one’s identity, San Valentin started from their own racial and gender identities yet constructed work that should not be read as autobiographical. Rather, the images can be applied to others’ personal lives as well as our collective experience in this existence.

The works themselves experienced duality in the creation process. The structured nature of screen printed pattern is broken down by a call-and-response kind of mark-making as opposed to calculated moves. Blocks of flat color meld and contrast with defined line drawings. Mass is given to small images through repetition. These screen printed fabric pieces co-exist with black ink illustrations on white paper.

San Valentin sees these works as the beginning, just barely reconciling the systems in our lives that contain two opposite yet equal parts. To recognize the opposites in oneself and accept the need for both parts in order for either to exist. To summon the ghosts of one’s past- the faults and successes, the joys and sorrows- and work with them, allowing oneself to be softened by the ache of their presence.

Al San Valentin lives and works in Philadelphia. They work at a local arts-based preschool, where the uninhibited matter in which children create art is a major influence on their work. San Valentin constantly seeks to return to that moment in life where the path between the image in the mind and the pencil in the hand is gloriously unbroken.

Drop Ceiling

Opening Reception Friday April 1 from 7pm to 10pm

Space 1026 is pleased to present ​Drop Ceiling,​ an exhibition of new animation, sculpture, and printed matter by Philadelphia artists Jacob Rivkin and Joshua Zerangue, on view from April 1​—​April 30, 2016.

Rivkin -Fortunate Isles Still 2

To retrofit a structure is to fold time and progress. A drop ceiling, as a whole, functions by simultaneously conforming to and concealing the inner layers of a building through a system of standardized parts. If damaged by water, smoke, or mold​—​these long tiles can be easily swapped out by new ones. The drop ceiling is just as it was. When working on a damaged boat, wooden ship-builders claim as long as they keep one plank of wood from the old form in the new, then by proxy it is still the same boat. This process of doubling forms serves as a conceptual framework for the exhibition ​Drop Ceiling, ​where questioning the role of subsequent translations of meaning is paramount. Rivkin and Zerangue’s collective works examine distance, in both measured time and imaginary space, between the​ literal and figurative parts of language, narrative, and cinema.

Zerangue’s works symbolically and metaphorically obscure the interrelationships between sources by appropriating letters and symbols, motor parts, and text. By selecting source material, like a 1976 Puch 2-stroke engine repair manual, that has passed through several layers of translation (linguistically, temporally, and spatially), the larger cultural and historical implications of distance between viewer and original meaning become entangled and confused.

Rivkin’s animation forms a dialogue between digital and analog cinema to reconcile methods of creating wonder. The limited color palette of Rivkin’s animation emphasises both the subtle collapsed space, or joins, between the separate layers of hand-drawn animation and the dramatic intensity of the surrounding landscapes. This is juxtaposed in the installation by the chroma-key suits for future animation performances. These suits reveal, through their form the potential for playful gestures and unique movement, a connection to the animator’s close partnership to dance and choreography.

Each work embodies its own individual sense of rhythm, structure, and time–as they also reflect a deeper contemplation on the role of analog technologies within an increasingly digital world. Through converting three dimensional sculpture to animation and embedding digital video into a flip book, Rivkin and Zerangue’s works invite viewers to reexamine their own drop ceiling of engagement to the world of mediated information, objects, and images.

Jacob Rivkin’s ​animation work has screened at the Animation Block Party in Brooklyn, NY, Vox Populi in Philadelphia, PA, and the Peephole Cinema in San Francisco. His sculptures have been exhibited at the Vancouver Art Gallery in Vancouver, BC, the Arlington Art Center in Arlington, VA and Julius Caesar Gallery in Chicago, IL. He is the recipient of a Fulbright Grant and the Weitzel Barber Travel Prize. He currently teaches animation and design courses at the University of Pennsylvania.

Joshua Zerangue’s animation work has screened at the Brooklyn Film Festival in Brooklyn, NY, Athens International Film Festival in Athens, OH, the Columbia Museum of Art, Columbia, SC, and at the Second Annual New Media Juried Exhibition, Asheville Art Museum, Asheville, NC. He currently teaches art and design courses at the University of Delaware and Drexel University.
