Black & White Gallery / Project Space, Brooklyn, NY is delighted to launch the second half of its tenth season with “The World According To Roberley Bell, Isidro Blasco, Julian Montague, Alejandro Moreno, Santiago Taccetti, Amy Talluto, Michael Van den Besselaar and Eric White”. The exhibition will showcase the diversity of the gallery program. The 8 artists included with works representing a variety of media (paintings, installations, sculpture, photography and design) reveal the sharp awareness they have of today’s circumstances. Ranging from Michael Van den Besselaar’s witty and wry observations on a range of familiar social subjects and Eric White’s insightful commentary on the absurdities of life to Julian Montague’s exploration of everything from the mundane to the sublime through text and image, the works in this exhibition cover a wide range of practices, lending the exhibition an uncanny edge.

SANTIAGO TACCETTI
Smoke & Mirrors / Nothing To See Here

March 10 - May 19, 2012
Opening reception: Saturday, March 10, 6-9pm

The exhibition will also feature a dramatic site-specific installation “Smoke & Mirrors / Nothing To See Here” by the Berlin-based Argentinean artist Santiago Taccetti. Integrating with the Black & White Project Space’s architecture, the simple plastic structure lit from inside and filled with smoke will occupy the outdoor gallery revealing itself as an illusion on closer inspection. The illusion of entering an area clearly defined by four walls is broken as soon as the observer enters the brightly lit cube triggering the smoke machine. What is to be experienced is the infinite space without any clear distinction between the inner and outer spaces.

Smoke & Mirrors / Nothing To See Here installation masterly plays with the observer’s illusion by incorporating materials such as smoke machine, fluorescent lights and reflective PLEXI panels that confront observers with themselves. The world according to Santiago Taccetti is disorienting with no clear boundaries separating the inner and outer worlds.

Santiago Taccetti is a recipient of Black & White Project Space Winter 2012 Artist-in-Residency Award, the semi-annual accolade presented to artists working in the field of site-specific installations.
