Exhibition Opening: Taxonomies

Exhibition Opening: Taxonomies

Onlyonegallery and Revelateur Studio are proud to present: The highly anticipated gallery show at OnlyOneGallery “TAXONOMIES” (#taxonomiesoog) is a dynamic, yet playful perspective centered on global human placement, as well as a look at how we as species interact with the surrounding environment, built or natural. This is not a critique or praise of human activity, but rather, a current snapshot of today’s times, showing our interaction with the world at three different scales: Macro, Meso and Micro.

ULTRADISTANCIA, at the macro scale (by Federico Winer), is a global perspective using a simple visual apparatus - Google Earth - for use in abstract image manipulation. The abstractions play with color, texture and shape to a surreal degree. The objective being to understand how humans, as a genus, forget to look with our eyes and have habitually come to perceive the world through technology.

ACHITECTURAL INOCULATION, at the meso scale, A collaboration between Arnaud Marthouret and Reza Aliabadi (Atelier RZLBD - www.rzlbd.com), exposes post-war residential Toronto neighborhoods to middle- class unapologetic, sometimes disruptive, architectural customization, which has become a phenomenon in recent years. The boldly truthful photos turned out authentic, honest and beautiful… true to the architecture. Here, the subject isn’t portrayed as a stand-alone piece of architecture but rather as an object integrated within its urban fabric and documents how disruptive designs can affect their surroundings.

ATTRACTED OPPOSITES, at the micro scale, is a significantly playful collaboration between Arnaud Marthouret and Melissa Tung, where “ownership of public urban spaces” was the overall objective. Together, Arnaud and Melissa came up with creative ways to explore and take over stylish, sophisticated public parks in Toronto to openly practice yoga poses. This project is about being temporary. Appropriating spaces for uses they are not intended for. It is about transporting vitality and seduction to sometimes hard, cold spaces, presenting final images that would otherwise be void of such beauty.
