Gali Greenspan’s new solo show at HiLo gallery, showcases a body of work produced since relocating to Alfred, NY two years ago. Created during her residency in IEA, Alfred and Signal Culture Studio Residency for Analogue Video, Owego, NY, these works are the reflection of a passionate dive into the process of exploring the analog video’s unique rhythm and colors. The hands-on process with heritage equipment, such as Sandin image processor, Jones analog colorizer, MVIP, and Wobbulator, later evolved into work with moving images, printed frames sequences, and XY plotter drawings. In the front space at HiLo – a site-specific, large prints and a video installation.
Gali Greenspan’s work traverses between image and space, creating transitional territories where the real and the imagined coexist. Her work explores patterns of movements and materiality, colliding natural mundane surfaces, with their sensual and emotional triggers, and the rhythms of her own daily life. Created during her residency in IEA, Alfred and Signal Culture Studio Residency for Analogue Video, Owego, NY, these works reflect a passionate dive into the process of wave disturbance creating rhythm, colors, movements and sound unique to analog video. Dissonance between an image of a pristine office space captured on video, and the video material’s inherent glitches and noise replicates Greenspan’s own emotional detachment from her newfound home in the Owego area.
The front space at HiLo showcases large prints and a video installation that documents Greenspan’s experimentation with the materiality of analog hands-on processes with heritage equipment, such as Sandin image processor, Jones analog coloriser, MVIP, and Wobbulator, later evolved into work with moving images, printed frames sequences, and plotter drawings. When reproduced on different materials such as aluminum flashing and a mass-produced carpet, still images pulled from the videos become bound by time and space. Fiber echoes the pixels; a change in orientation replicates shifts in repetitive frame patterns. The grayness of the office space transformed into color through the digital translation gleams on the aluminum surface and saturates the stains on the rug. Greenspan continues her exploration of the different flow each material offers by placing different qualities of glaze in proximity. The grid-like texture on each of the slab objects allows the tangible and unpredictable behavior of the glaze to shape her work.
Gali Greenspan (b. 1979, Jerusalem) is a multidisciplinary artist based in Alfred, NY
