Inman Gallery is pleased to present Linarejos Moreno: Art Forms in Mechanism, the artist’s second exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition will open Thursday, March 9th, with a reception from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, and will continue through April 15th.
The work in the exhibition is an excerpt from a larger project that Moreno realized in early 2016 and presented at the Royal Botanic Garden of Madrid as part of PhotoEspaña. The exhibition features a series of unique photographs printed on gessoed burlap, as well as several large-scale inkjet prints, all of which are images of 19th century botanical models. “Art Forms in Mechanism” is a text- and image-based investigation that explores how modernity has produced systems of knowledge by decontextualizing the objects that serve to illuminate that knowledge. Moreno engages the relationships between the industrial serialization and the fragility of the natural world. With a background in conservation and an intense focus on materiality, Moreno strives to re-contextualize objects initially designed for industrial, scientific, or artistic realms.
