Mika Horibuchi: Slightly Better Than Reality
@ Gagosian't Gallery
60 East Monroe #3708, Chicago, IL
Opening Thursday, November 8th, from 6PM - 9PM
On view through Saturday, December 8th
Gagosian’t Gallery is excited to present the exhibition of painter and installation artist, Mika Horibuchi. Slightly Better Than Reality explores the space between fiction and hyper-reality.
A cadence of visual cues materialized in painting and installation creates an assemblage of artificial and real information that forms a complex unitary whole.
By accentuating and confusing familiar space, the notion of what is real, fake, a copy or a representation is examined.
This body of work emerges from a relationship of separate modes of representation supplemented by photography, memory, painterly incident and mechanism. These pieces have been appropriated from installations that depict artificial interior spaces that have then been painted to look real. Familiar perspective becomes subtly distorted. The work imitates, confuses, and echoes itself with a notion of doubling that blurs the distinction between original and copy.
Mika Horibuchi lives and works in Chicago, IL, where she is completing her BFA degree in Painting at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
