This Friday, February 27th, from 6-9pm is your last chance to see the site conditional photo installation by Philipp Scholz Rittermann. Seeing this piece in person is truly a unique experience. It would be a shame if you didn’t get to see it before it’s gone forever.
It’s great to be in a position to facilitate the opportunity for an artist I respect to exhibit work they wouldn’t normally make. I’ve know for many years now that Philipp Scholz Rittermann is an exceptional photographer with an impeccable eye for detail. As would be expected, being a photographer, Philipp is used to making flat work. However, I had a feeling that he was itching to take his work off the wall and into a more three dimensional realm. I had no idea what to expect when I asked him to take a shot at making a site specific piece for ICE Gallery, but I trusted that he could come up with something interesting.
Please join us Friday January 9th from 6-9pm and participate in an immersive site conditional photographic installation.
We couldn’t have been more pleased with our last show at ICE Gallery. It was such a pleasure to work with our good friend Tom Driscoll, and he didn’t disappoint with his final results. We gave Tom free reign to show any work he wanted and to do anything he saw fit with the space. Initially he asked us what kind of show/work we wanted to see from him. Our response was to tell him “it doesn’t matter what we want. You just do the exact show that you want to see, and we’ll help you realize it”.
The photo above is what the gallery looked like about 2 weeks before the opening. The space had been a disaster for so many months, it felt good to get it all cleaned up and ready for install one last time.
Tom’s idea for an “all foam show”, along with his decisions on how to show the work was just the kind of unique approach we love about Tom and his work. Just about every piece was made specifically for the show and a couple pieces were made specifically with the space in mind.
We had the best turn out to date at the opening and everyone seemed to really enjoy the work. In fact our good friend Philipp Scholz Rittermann was so excited by the show that he offered to shoot it for Tom. The shots came out great! Check them out full screen in the slideshow below.
We were very fortunate to be able to get our good friend Philipp Scholz-Rittermann to shoot 3 out of 4 shows at ICE. Unfortunately Philipp was out of town for Lee’s show, so he wasn’t able to shoot that one. However, here are the ones we did get:
