The show "Refraction" is based on the idea of “intermediality”, the transgression of margins, and how this shift changes our perception of the world around us. Audiences are invited to experience such shifts on multiple levels: The journey leads from holographic projection (perceived 3 dimensional space) to perceived 2- dimensional space (canvas, print) to introspective, multi-dimensional spaces.
Oliver Gingrich, displays across a range of different media, photography, digital art, acryl on canvas and holographic projection. With the collective Analema Group, the use of high end technology results in immersive experiences for their audiences. In his photography series, the artist explores the theme of male identity.
With a background in Fine Arts (Central Saint Martins, London) and Digital Art (University of Vienna) and a doctorate in media, Oliver’s practises his Art from his studio in Notting Hill, London.
The series post-apocalyptic angels portraits angelic beings in a time after god. Uncertain of destiny, or ontological meanings, they exist in a state of constant questioning.
The series “Studies in Kitsch. Perceptions.” reveals differences in sameness. Set across 4 continents exploring various elements, male subjects question their position in life, longing to be elsewhere.
Refraction poses questions about crossing borders: Refractions occur when a light beam leaves one medium and enters the next. What happens when one crosses from one medium to another - physically and metaphysically.
