Salon: Peter Gregorio and Anna K.E
Peter Gregorio will present a lecture on the relationship of contemporary ideas in cosmology, post-humanism, and technology in relation to his artistic practice. His work considers the merger of the human cognition and technology in the context of visual art, from both a personal and universal vantage point. Gregorio works in large-scale painting, print, video, and installation, creating works and experiences that remix given architecture with new cultural landscapes and contemporary ideas in cosmology.
Peter Gregorio currently lives and works in New York. He received an MFA from the School of Visual Art, New York, is the recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation Award, and the Founder and Editor of VECTOR Artist’s Journal.
Anna K.E. will present a series of drawings, objects, photographs and installations. Her artistic practice aims to overcome the hermetic boundaries that exist between different creative disciplines in order to form a single artistic body and employs textual hybrids with recognizable visual codes.
Anna K.E. (born 1986 in Tbilisi, Georgia) studied in Dusseldorf, Germany with Hubert Kiecol, Christopher Williams and Georg Herold. She received her Meisterschueler degree from Georg Herold at Kunstakademie Duesseldorf in 2010. She will present a solo exhibition at Kunstverein Leverkusen / Museum Morsbroich in June 2011.
