Magnan Metz Gallery is pleased to present the fourth solo exhibition for Alexandre Arrechea. The show will be on view from March 2 – April 7 with an opening reception Thursday, March 1st. The artist will be present.

Twisted Horizon presents a new series of work that explores Arrechea’s interest in making unlikely connections between places and/or objects that have conventionally been perceived as unrelated, or opposed. Employing utilitarian structures such as bridges, roads and buildings as a point of departure these elements appear suspended in hands like trophies, floating in the air or simply in motion varying in their intensity and gesture. They represent possession, triumph of power, history and progress, but can also signal care, preservation and love. Through these gestures one ultimately discovers the possibility of transformation – changing the original take on the object.
