This event has ended.

Fridman Gallery presents Hybrid Gaze, a solo exhibition by Anton Ginzburg.

The installation premieres a two-channel video End of Perspective and several other new works.

Ginzburg is interested in the contemporary extension of the human eye by means of technology and the resulting dematerialization of the body, the hybrid gaze of the human and the machine.

The footage for End of Perspective was filmed by two drones flying above Dutchess County. The soundtrack is composed of notes with different timings of sound decay, as well as field recordings. Exploring the formal possibilities of airborne camera movements and two-channel editing, End of Perspective offers a transcendent experience of nature as it is observed by the mechanical Other. The mechanical gaze of the camera is returned onto the machine itself, as the two drones view each other. Meanwhile, the representation of the landscape of the Hudson River Valley, the site that was historically definitive for American romanticism in landscape painting in mid-19th century, is activated by aerial points of view of the drone technology.

The hybrid aura of the technological and natural phenomena offers an interplay and reconsideration of distinct perspectives, distances and spatial relationships. Identifying and mediating the gaze by means of montage is a strategy to resist mastery of vision over the subject. The human body is absent from the artworks and appears indirectly through recordings and reflections of diverse media, or by presence of the viewer in the installation.
