PRESS RELEASE (PDF)
Light & Wire Gallery presents a series of videos by Analia Saban as an online exhibition titled Froing and Toing. Created by Saban in her undergraduate program in 2001, these videos are an early exploration of her interest in perception and the body that is largely significant to her current practice and process.
Influenced by the filmmaker Alberto Worcel with whom Saban had worked with in her youth, the art of video was her first practice. Within this format, the reproduction of the world through a viewfinder, through a live, electrical signal, was life changing for her; a three-dimensional world transformed into two-dimensions and the possibilities for experimentation were limitless.
In Saban’s low-tech videos, technology serves to document itself, thereby nullifying its own purpose. In her exploration of sound and movement, the analog nature of the work creates a sometimes agitated or liminal state of sensory experience. This is the first exhibition of these highly influential videos since 2001, and includes a new work from 2010 after which the show is titled.
Analia Saban has exhibited internationally at Sprueth Magers Projekte, Munich; Praz-Dellavallade, Paris; and Josh Lilley, London. She has an upcoming exhibition at Thomas Solomon Gallery, Los Angeles in 2011. Analia Saban was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and lives in Los Angeles.
