BROOKLYN, NY.- ODETTA is presenting a new solo installation that collaborating partners Chris Klapper and Patrick Gallagher, called Dataatadata: 3-sphere.

Rather than the traditional summer group exhibition, ODETTA offers one artist, or in this case, a two-person team, the opportunity to create the monumental sculptural installation of their wildest dreams. The only rule is that they cannot walk it in the door. It must be built on site.

To this end, Chris and Patrick, husband and wife, began work on Dataatadata: 3 Sphere over a year ago. Working up in scale with four models for their primary sculpture, Projective Plane, the artists have pushed beyond their preconceived limitations to realize this larger idea.

Their work is a visual representation of the concepts of infinity and higher dimensional space using transparent materials, carved walls and programmable LED. The final result of Projective Plane is that the centerpiece of their solo show is a 500 lb invisible sculpture!

Over the past seven years, their collaboration has brought each of their strengths, personal expertise, and vision together in a way that accelerates each project into more ambitious territories.

Chris and Patrick’s artworks have been exhibited in NYC, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Oklahoma, Spain, Italy and Poland.

Their works have been written about around the globe, in Fast Company, The Atlantic, Designboom, Creators Project, TSpain, The New York Times Style Magazine and Wallpaper to name a few. They have received grants The Brooklyn Arts Council and Black Rock Arts Foundation.

Another key installation is Hyperplane, which was created with LED lights and cast acrylic, built into the gallery wall. references the uses the mathematical equation that describes 3-Sphere as a work of art, carved into the wall panel. Their interest in showing us the beauty of numbers, equations, and language, in addition to their ability to translate these esoteric symbols into visual works of art is at the core of their practice as artists.

Bridging the language between philosophical and tangible, they have utilized a range of media from intaglio prints to hydrocal cast numerals in strands installed on the walls, to plexiglas lean panels that are self-referential. Mathematicians, physicists, and artists can all ponder 3-Sphere, folded space, and infinity through their hand and computer generated artworks.

In addition to the sculptural installation in the main gallery, ODETTA has works from artists Elizabeth Gourlay and Morgan O'Hara in their Flat Files.

ODETTA's Flat Files are curated and change with every exhibition.

Functioning more as intimate gallery wall spaces, rather than cabinet drawers, ODETTA's Flat Files transform the gallery viewing experience into an interactive dialogue, bringing the viewer into closer contact with the artists' works.
