Rodolph de Salis has used his Label de Salis vehicle to transform the Schwartz Gallery Project Space into a depository. Glittering in hyperspace, it is a carte-blanche melange of objects found, purchased and inherited; a festival of re-evaluation, appropriation and juxtapositioning. The installation blurs the boundaries between gallery, living and storage space. A cornucopia of objects ranging from paintings, antiques, flags, swords, boxes, books, furniture, exhibition catalogues, vinyl records and a myriad of collected items occupy an ambiguous territory whereby objects double as improvised household fixtures and collecting overlaps with personal domestic habits and hoarding tendencies. In short, we are immersed in a space rich in contradictions investigating the role of the viewer, the artist and the gallery as well as the value of art. ____________________________________________________________ Rodolph de Salis' previous solo-shows include: Angel of the South, 1998-2000; Auto-Ego, 2001; rimmin' (interface), 2003; Port Portal/Luton Voussoir, 2007; Sub-primer, Credit-crunc hie, 2007; new-dom dawn (pictures for Purim), 2008; Cavendo Tutus, 2007; ‘Quite useful art geezer'(Pavel Aksenov in ‘Rudolf storage'), 2003-2004; Fumer tue & Palenie zabija, 2005; Pezzo Skelto, 2001; Colorado Boullions Regina, 2002; Magic and Illusion , 2005; and Royal Red Route, 1999.
