V1 GALLERY (NYC) PRESENTS
BABEL TALES REDUX
A SOLO EXHIBITION BY PETER FUNCH
ON NEW YORK, IN NEW YORK, FOR THE FIRST TIME
Opening Tuesday September 6. 2011. From 5 – 10 PM.
V1 Gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition by Peter Funch (Danish, b. 1974) in New York, on view at a new temporary gallery space at 558 W 21st street & the West Side Highway.
Babel Tales Redux marks an end and a beginning. Peter Funch’s 5 year long exploration of the streets of New York has reached its conclusion and the exhibition unveils the result: 40 monumental panoramic works. This is the first time the complete Babel Tales series will be shown in the city, in which the series is routed.
Funch’s works are documents of moments that never existed, as they are composed of thousands of frozen moments taken over the duration of several weeks for each work. By shooting at the exact same position over a period of time, Funch is able to superimpose images, and he hereby creates a fictional work based on documentary photography.
Opening reception: Tuesday, September 6, 5-10pm
Opening hours: Tuesday – Saturday 11-6 pm
Show runs September 7 – October 8
V1 Gallery hosted by KWPF space, 558 W 21st street New York NY 10011
