Dominique Lévy | 909 Madison Ave.
Peter Regli: One Sun – One Moon at Dominique Lévy will present Reality Hacking No. 240 (2007 – present), an ensemble of sacred and totemic personages situated in animated pairs and groups. The shared medium of carved marble makes these venerated symbols and folkloric figures appear to have a family resemblance as they meet head-on in a cultural exchange between the East and the West.
Also on view in One Sun – One Moon is a series of photographs taken by the artist during past Reality Hacking projects. For Regli, photographs are not merely records of completed projects, but also the sole document to the often subtle, even imperceptible, alterations to the everyday landscape. The photographs on view at Dominique Lévy embody the peripatetic impulse at work in Regli’s Reality Hacking, in which the artist designates unlikely sites as sacred for a moment, leaving only ephemeral traces.
One Sun – One Moon will be on view through August 15, 2015. The exhibition will be accompanied by an artist's book published by the gallery and designed by An Art Service.
