Asya Geisberg Gallery presents “Stature”, our first solo exhibition with Rodrigo Valenzuela. This photographic series features eight photogravures taken of assemblages made in the artist’s studio. The pre-film photogravure process gives the prints rich grey-sepia tones, lending them an august air, and the configurations of concrete forms resemble anything from Brutalist architecture to monuments, machinery, or monsters. The images mimic the language of documentary photography, but, at odds with their apparent gravitas, the concrete pieces are in fact cast from discarded consumer packaging. Their immobility, too, is an illusion - all the forms are carefully stacked and balanced, rather than cast as a whole or glued in place. Valenzuela’s previous work in photography, video and installation often involves narratives around immigration and the working class. The layering of social critique, art historical awareness, re-evaluation of the traditions of documentary photography, and a sense of play are all equally signature to his work.
