Klemens Gasser & Tanja Grunert Gallery is pleased to announce Immortal Equations – A Living Installation, a solo exhibition and theatrical happening by Michael Alan. The exhibition is twofold and will take place over the course of two days. Immortal Equations will present a new series of paintings and drawings – an exhibition which will be transformed and incorporated into The Living Installation; an experiential, participatory, draw-a-thon performative happening. Immortal Equations will be on view on February 24th and February 25th from 11a.m. to 6p.m. The Living Installation will take place on February 25th from 6 p.m. till midnight.
There is an aura of displacement, indirection and obliquity in Michael Alan’s paintings. Jagged, twisted and delicate lines come together to formulate distorted representations. Dysmorphic forms with splashes of color. Twisted, squiggly, yet instantly communicative and harmonious. Intrinsically, Alan’s marks are equations, a language of its own. An evocation of gesture and expression, they capture movement that is ever so changing. Like a message in a bottle, they are timeless records of sound and energy as Alan states, “I’m not interested in creating images, I’m interested in the documentation of the living.” Immortal Equations presents a selection of such living documentations, which will then be transformed into the backdrop for The Living Installation.
