Infra Structures: Jan Tichy Solo Exhibition in NYC

Jan Tichy’s third solo exhibition with the gallery, continuing the artist’s exploration into the politics of light

Fridman Gallery is honored to present Infra Structures, Jan Tichy’s third solo exhibition with the gallery, continuing the artist’s exploration into the politics of light. The exhibition comprises three bodies of recent work.

Over the last two decades, Tichy has created over 40 projection installations which have been exhibited around the world. The installations deal with the encounter between the artist’s formal visual language and the context in which it is created. Tichy uses light to examine the way in which architectural structures, infrastructure and the public space are mandated by social, economic, political or national agents of power, and how they affect the fabric of society.

Tichy has coined the concept of ‘social formalism’ to describe his work. The Installations series continues his investigation and experiments with light as material. The series consists of 40 photo etchings (around half of which are on display in the exhibition), one print per installation. Tichy sought to move from the photographic medium to engraving and printing in order to rediscover light – this time outside of space – and to reveal a new range of shades and qualities of concentration and dispersion. Appropriately, Installations is having its U.S. debut at Fridman Gallery, which exhibited five of the installations over the last decade.
