Where: Kaikai Kiki Gallery, 2-3-30 Motoazabu
A solo exhibition by Berlin-based artist Oliver Laric that explores duplication and transformation through sculpture, video, animation, and web-based projects. Laric’s work explores an increasingly pervasive sense of fluidity in our relationship with images and objects, including our own bodies.
In this exhibition, Laric will show an as yet untitled 2014 video work. The video depicts tracings of animated sequences appropriated from other films. The animated sequences portray bodies involuntarily morphing from one form to another, such as a grown man turning into a baby, or a cobra transforming into a man.
In addition to the video work, Laric continues an ongoing series in which he creates three-dimensional scanned models of sculptural objects from institutional archives. He then makes the 3D models available on the internet, for free and unlimited use by the public for any purpose, commercial or otherwise. Most recently, Laric has scanned a plaster copy of Riger Lichier’s Transi de René Chalon.
