COUNTERFEIT UNIVERSE

Apr 3 - Apr 24, 2015

COUNTERFEIT UNIVERSE

Counterfeit Universe is about the copy of a copy. It is about belief in surface, attitudes towards brands, our relation to objects, and a deep personal affection towards the mundane. Mario Gallucci’s work looks at the human condition as it relates to surrounding objects. His process, a combination of photography, sculptural pattern-making, and recreation on a 1:1 scale, allows his sculptural photographs to operate in a liminal space between existence and representation. This casts even the mundane in a new light, questions their significance, symbology, value, and the relational affect on the human condition.
