Jan Tichy / MATRIX 164
April 5 – August 5, 2012

Jan Tichy explores his interests in architecture, politics and the evocation of power through his art. Part architectural model and part video installation, his eerie sculptural nightscapes resemble covert military sites, top-secret nuclear facilities, and alien lunar surfaces. In darkened spaces, slow-moving light projections travel irregularly across his sculptural paper constructions, suggesting notions of security surveillance, the seen and unseen, and the visible and invisible.
