extended until 29.11. | #2255ARtatBerlin | Galerie Gilla Lörcher shows from 27th of October 2018 the solo exhibition Support with new works by the Chilean artist Franzisco Roza.
Galerie Gilla Lörcher | Contemporary Art is very excited to present the new objects by Chilean artist Francisco Rozas (*1980). Since 2013 Francisco Rozas is concentrating on the construction of big, fragile, geometric objects, that oscillate between flatness and three-dimensionality. They embody exemplary visualisations of mathematical dependencies. Only on second sight the observer may realize, that the objects are made of light materials, such as card paper or paper.
SUPPORT is the artist´s third solo show at Galerie Gilla Lörcher. With his installation “In Planning” (2014), Francisco Rozas investigated the process of designing and the gallery space as a permanent site of construction. His solo „Pretending“ (Gallery Weekend 2016) comprised a large amount of 2 meter tall objects arranged all over the gallery like models on a catwalk.
Francisco Rozas, born 1980 in Temuco, Chile. Lives and works in Berlin. The artist studied at the ARCIS University Santiago de Chile, at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf with Prof. Rita McBride and at the Universität der Künste UdK Berlin with Prof. Gregor Schneider and Art in Context (Masters Degree). He received the DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austausch-Dienst) stipend and the CONICYT (National Commission for Scientific and Technological Research) award.
His work has been shown at many institutions and galleries: Kunsthalle Bremerhaven; Al Riwaq Art Space (Manama, Bahrain); SAVVY Contemporary, Berlin; Project Space Berger Straße, Frankfurt a.M.; Katzengold, lvbg-Jubiläumsausstellung (curated by Constanze Kleiner), POSITIONS BERLIN art fair 2015; Video Lounge, POSITIONS BERLIN art fair 2014 + 2015; Galerie PANAM, Santiago, Chile; Glint space, Berlin; Galerie Gilla Lörcher I Contemporary Art (Berlin) a.o.
