NEW YORK, NY.- For his second solo show with Stephan Stoyanov Gallery, Jeff Gibson presents two video projections, two light boxes, and a series of twenty text prints.

Asylum, a six-minute video loop, will be projected onto the main wall of the ground floor gallery space. Blending lush, allusive photography; taxonomic illustrations; and mock-psychologistic text, Asylum weaves formal and semantic correspondence into a weirdly visceral stream of consciousness.

Unfurling as a chain of slow dissolves between image and resemblant abstraction, the video is accompanied by a haunting, mesmeric song about psychological instability—Trouble, by Australian band The Black Eyed Susans—that sets a contemplative tone for the overlaid texts defining both real and fake pathologies.

The second video, Smoke, will be projected onto a wall in the gallery’s basement space. It has a similar structure to Asylum, though this time with the visuals actively synched to an instrumental soundtrack by Brisbane artist and musician Kiley Gaffney.

Whereas Asylum is slowly paced and broadly ranging conceptually and stylistically, Smoke is faster, shorter, and distinctly gothic in character—more pointed, and, though still comical, creepily so. Both videos make clear the artist’s abiding interest in humor, criticism, perception, and psychology, expressed through a playful interaction of music, text, image, and abstraction.

Also on view in the ground floor space will be a pair of light boxes containing strangely poetic clusters of appropriated imagery juxtaposed with formally related photographic abstractions. With much of the imagery verging on kitsch, these works scramble and recast popular iconographic codes to articulate a paradoxical sense of psychological refuge and unease.

And finally, downstairs, will hang a series of twenty, editioned text prints, purely conceptual works that reflexively probe the mental health of the art world and its inhabitants. The exhibition is on view through February 6 2011.
