MINUS SPACE is pleased to announce the exhibition Tilman: Radio Vallebona / Transmission #1. This is the NYC and Vallebona, Italy-based artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery and it will feature the first installment of his
new transitory, environmental sculpture entitled Radio Vallebona. Developed over the past decade during extensive travel throughout Europe, Australia, Asia, and the United States, Radio Vallebona is the culmination of various aspects of Tilman’s studio practice, including his investigation of color,
light, architectural space, and social engagement with the public. Tilman’s installation also emphasizes the nomadic nature of his current practice, which often results in temporary site-specific projects realized in collaboration with other artists, curators, and exhibition venues. Described by the artist as “an open structure, a laboratory, and an arena for reflection, discussion, and exchange”, Radio Vallebona / Transmission #1 will consist of a single site-specific architectural structure extending throughout
the entire space of the gallery made of lumber, plywood, MDF, pegboard, fabric, light, and paint. The installation will also feature LCD projections of abstract and text animations, as well as an audio recording of various radio
broadcasts near his remote, rural studio in northern Italy. For his installation, Tilman also invited guest Belgian artist Greet Billet to create a new iteration of her ongoing project The development of the monochrome in its digital and analogue form of apparition. Started in 2008, the project investigates the tension between the digital (objective) and analog (subjective) nature of color through projected light, the screenprinted page, and installation. This is Billet’s first exhibition in the United States. A color catalog will accompany the exhibition.(excerpt, MINUS SPACE Press Release)
