LIO MALCA PRESENTS:
MARCO BRAMBILLA AT LA NAVE
SALINAS IN IBIZA (SPAIN)
Summer season, 2016
For this year's 2016 exhibition, La Nave Salinas hosts Megaplex, a dynamic show consisting of three video pieces: Civilization 2008, Evolution 2010, Creation 2012, by the Italian artist Marco Brambilla.
A large projection box has been installed in La Nave to simulate a theater. Upon entering, the viewer is given a pair of 3D glasses and is guided to the interior of the theatre. Once inside, the viewer is transported to a world of sensory magic.
Megaplex (Civilization2008, Evolution 2010, Creation 2012) explores video collage, sampling cinematic language in order to refine its aesthetic vision. The resulting work is a video triptych that evokes epic historical narratives inspired by the lushimagery of Breughel and Bosch.
Brambilla’s hyper-saturated altarpieces test the limits of visual overload, looping, and interweaving in ways that test the temporal parameters of the moving image. The three works discuss the language of modern cinema and pop culture while celebrating and satirizing the absurdities of Hollywood.
“I love the idea of bringing my work to the general public, not just people who go to gallery openings.”
Marco Brambilla is a visual artist based in New York and Berlin who has gained international recognition for his video installations. The opening of his exhibition at La Nave Salinas coincides with the showing of another of his video pieces at the 2016 Berlin Biennale.
Brambilla is known for his elaborate recontextualization of images that harness and explore new technologies. Brambilla is a pioneer in the use of 3D technology in video art. Brambilla has exhibited worldwide, including New York (2011) and Bern (2012). In May 2011, his first major retrospective opened at the Santa Monica Museum of Art. His work is part of several permanent collections in Madrid and the artist has been awarded by both the Tiffany Foundation and the Colbert Foundation for his work in video installation.
