O/S (Operating System)

sure the world is in a financial meltdown, and the environment is about to implode on us, but we still have art. really really good art. for example, we have Tim Biskup‘s opening this weekend in Paris at the Addict Galerie. if you’re a frenchie, you should go.

“With Tim Biskup’s new collection of sculpture/painting combination pieces he presents the duality of his recent work in a neatly organized fashion. Each of the twelve pieces in the exhibition are self contained units which include an original painting packed into it’s own shipping crate along with an elaborate pedestal that can be assembled using parts that come inside the crate as well as the crate itself. These “systems”, as the artist calls them, constitute a fusion of Biskup’s aesthetic style and his conceptual theories. The pieces are intended to represent the interconnection between art itself and the peripheral elements that allow it to exist. As a metaphor, the “systems” ask the question of weather the peripheral elements actually add to or distract from the the artwork being presented.”
