Multimedia solo exhibition by Austrian artist Timotheus Tomicek opens at Jenkins Johnson Gallery
Timotheus Tomicek, Conversation, 2013. 2 piece video installation. Edition of 5, 29 1/2 x 17 3/4 in. (74.93 x 45.09 cm) 75x45 cm each.
NEW YORK, NY.- Jenkins Johnson Gallery, New York, presents World, a multimedia solo exhibition by Austrian artist Timotheus Tomicek, featuring video, sculptural, and light installations, as well as photographs and painting. Tomicek’s work breaks technological standards, challenging the boundary between the physical and the expected; World debuts a three dimensional interactive projection, groundbreaking technology in the world of video. He recently had an exclusive solo show at C/O Berlin and was a Celeste Prize Finalist in 2012; this is his first solo show in New York, and the gallery’s first show as a member of AIPAD. The exhibition is open September 12 - November 2, 2013.

Timotheus Tomicek is interested in how we fit into the world, how our unique experiences, emotions, and thoughts come together to form a whole. The diversity of Tomicek’s media expands his approach to this expansive topic: World features videos, installations, still photographs, sculptures, and paintings. Tomicek brings together reduced versions of the whole as a coherent account of humanity and our many facets.

Tomicek’s new media makes World an exhibition on the cutting edge of technology, reaching beyond the sphere of the arts. “Baiser” is an interactive video projection that follows the viewers as they walk around the piece: we can inspect and embrace it but never quite obtain it. Similarly, Tomicek’s digital video installations, like “Conversation” and “Glass Girl,” employ thousands of still photographs, threaded together to create subtle video-like movement that is uncanny and unnatural, an entirely unique and innovative technique. The Huffington Post writes, “Tomicek’s intense fixation on his subjects asks you to look closer. Suddenly everyday actions begin to look surreal, as the still figure shifts ever so slightly.” Tomicek’s light installations, particularly “Gate,” challenge the boundary between what we see and what we perceive. Tomicek uses highly contrasting colors to push the limits of observation as the gate begins to look like an entrance to a new reality.

World’s variety and all-encompassing nature is indicative of a universal notion of being. Tomicek invites us to more than just a glance at each piece: he lends us his idea of the world, while also giving us an alternate view of our own. As the artist writes, “Unity, dissolution, illusion, and reality do not oppose one another but exist parallel and simultaneously.” Having finished a residency in Rome as a part of the Celeste Prize and presenting his work in VoltaNY in 2012, Tomicek brings a global perspective to this exhibition.
