My new exhibition Altered States opened last Thursday in New York with a great turn out. Here are some snap shots of the installation…
French financial journal “Les Echos” announces my new exhibition “Altered States” in the art & culture section of its weekend magazine “Série Limitée”.
Reality is never that which we perceive and it is always best unveiled through the eyes of artists. Thus, the Brooklyn-based French photographer Karine Laval has been exploring for years the visual appearance and its reflections, revealing the truth of beings and situations. Fans and critics, from Peter Marino to The New Yorker, have praised her work on pools, the murky waters she exposes – far from the clichés – or her videos. She shows in New York the fruit of her most recent work: the body disappears, forms are diluted, and the light absorbs them. Karine Laval offers here a new level of consciousness, between force and sensuality: just pure poetry. “Karine Laval: Altered States,” Bonni Benrubi Gallery, 41 East 57th Street 13th Floor, from 18 April to 24 May 2013.
“Altered States” opens on Thursday, April 18th at Bonni Benrubi Gallery in New York.
If you’re in New York and want to have a sneak preview of my upcoming exhibition opening on April 18th here is an opportunity to see an installation view of the “Collisions” piece at AIPAD (Bonni Benrubi Gallery – booth 308).
