Tallahassee; A new exhibition by Leo Gabin opens at Peres Projects
Tallahassee continues with a group of new large scale paintings related to A Crackup At The Race Riots and the unique slice of American culture Florida represents.
BERLIN.- Peres Projects presents Tallahassee, a new exhibition by Leo Gabin. This is Leo Gabin’s second solo show with the gallery.

Tallahassee is centered around Leo Gabin's first feature film A Crackup At The Race Riots, based on the Harmony Korine novel of the same title. A Crackup At The Race Riots is composed entirely from appropriated, user generated found footage and the viewer is hard pressed to find a plot, narrative, or any other sort of linear character development. What we do see are nearly 40 minutes of compelling images, a story made up of disparate images, uploaded online by unknown amateurs at an unknown time, joined together to form a portrait or time capsule of this place called Florida.

Florida is the Sunshine State for some and the land of lost dreams for others. For Leo Gabin, Florida becomes both a person and a place, an idea, and a dream. The film has a hallucinatory quality, images are blurred to the point of becoming abstracted, yet remain familiar. The sound is haunting.

Tallahassee continues with a group of new large scale paintings related to A Crackup At The Race Riots and the unique slice of American culture Florida represents. A 192 page artist book, Tallahassee, designed by Leo Gabin, and published by Peres Projects, will also accompanies the exhibition. This new publication is in an edition of 500.

Leo GABIN, Lieven Deconinck, Gaëtan Begerem and Robin De Vooght, has worked as a trio since 2000. All three were born in Ghent, Belgium, where they continue to live and work. They received their BFA’s at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Ghent. Recently, they participated in the group exhibition, PRIVAT, curated by Dr. Martina Weinhaert, Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, and have also had solo shows at New Holland, St. Petersburg, Russia, The Cultural Centre Bruges, Belgium, the Elizabeth Dee Gallery, NYC, and the Kunstraum Muenchen, Munich.
