FEATURED ARTIST

GAGA & REENA SPAULINGS LA

Gaga & Reena Spaulings LA

Gaga & Reena Spaulings LA presented an online exhibition for Gallery Platform Los Angeles (July  16 – 23) with works by Peter Fischli, Juan José Gurrola, Fernando Palma Rodríguez, Emily Sundblad, Juliana Huxtable, Klara Liden, and Mayo Thompson. Peter Fischli’s sculptures and pedestals are made of cardboard, then concealed with newspaper (Neue Zürcher Zeitung 1914, Neue Presse 1967/68, Migros Zeitung 2016/17) and construction paper. All sculptures are untitled, although some have “studio titles“ or nicknames. Some of the sculptures are based on a memory of artworks made for a movie shot in Los Angeles in 1981. One could say: the better the prop, the closer we come to the real possibility of sculpture. And: the more convincing the sculpture, the more successful the little miracle of making an artist appear too. Michin huan quimichtin continues Fernando Palma Rodríguez’s exploration and theories on pre-Hispanic codices. The cat bullying the mouse (Michin huan quimichtin) image speaks to the enormous amount of abuse of power in Mexico.
