In his magnum opus, Gravity’s Rainbow, Thomas Pynchon introduces us to the German concept of Brenschluss in the telemetry of the flight of the V2 rocket. The rocket is propelled by its engines and travels along its parabolic arc. At a certain point the engines turn off, this flameout is called brenschluss. At brenschluss the rocket’s ascendancy is checked by gravity, and before it begins to fall to its target on earth, it hesitates for just a moment. After this moment gravity and momentum alone, not a rocket engine, define the inexorable trajectory of descent to its inevitable, calamitous end. (READ MORE.)

Regina Silveira @ Alexander Gray
May 26 – July 29, 2011
Alexander Gray Associates is pleased to present the gallery’s second exhibition with the Brazilian artist, Regina Silveira. Since the 1960s, Silveira’s work has defied genre, moving between forms of installation, printmaking, sculpture and photography to explore visual distortion, perspective and scale.
For her exhibition at the gallery, Silveira presents her signature vinyl-decal mural-installations. The main installation, from her celebrated series, Desaparencia, depicts black and white diagrams of artists’ ateliers, graphically suggesting the ghosts of easels, tables, palettes, and other tools of the artist’s studio. In its iteration at Alexander Gray Associates, Silveira’s installation suggests the disappearance of traditional studio practice and location, as well as expectations of creation and alchemy that surround artistic mythology.
