"Alois Kronschlaeger's Repercussions: A Series of Surprisingly Divisive Events"
2006-03-02 until 2006-03-25
Plus Ultra Gallery
Brooklyn, NY, USA United States of America

Plus Ultra Gallery is extremely pleased to inaugurate our new location with Repercussions: A Series of Surprisingly Divisive Events, the first New York solo exhibition by Austrian-born artist Alois Kronschläger. With a site-specific installation and a striking new series of wall sculptures, Kronschlaeger continues his ongoing exploration in representing time and space via geometry. In contrast to the multitude of artists, architects and designers engaged in digital investigations of this topic, Kronschlaeger has developed a hand-made process for recording a complex series of events and actions within curvilinear space. The resulting sculptures constitute frozen points in time within these complex narratives, presented as a composition for the viewer's consideration.

To prepare his sculptures, which playfully reference the early pinstripe paintings of Frank Stella, Kronschläger lines sheets of archival paper with a latex caulk. These evenly spaced lines then serve as measures for recording the pending actions--crunching, pinching, folding, crinkling, etc.--that impact the pictorial plane. Kronschläger then sets the chosen compositions with a polystyrene base. Unlike earlier explorations with shaped or slashed canvases, however, these pieces maintain the integrity of their original plane's vertical and horizontal limits, even as the caulk lines emphasize both the beat of the actions and the topographical aspects of the now three-dimensional space they occupy.

The shift in scale in his site-specific installations takes Kronschläger's approach one step further in that he blurs the line between objects and construction, between space and applied artifact. By using the gallery's planes to emphasize the resulting negative space around his intricate surfaces, his large installations underline the progression into multi-dimensionality within his process.
