|Grids and Twists|
In her new digital photographs, Grids and Twists, Malagrino explores photographic possibilities and the intervals of time and space in the different cities she travels, and in her daily life. She composes spontaneously; sometimes the surrounding environments offer immediate single views into multiple planes of time and space, and at other moments, she takes advantage of the camera's capacity to record 16 consecutive shots in on single frame to create instantaneous compositions and grids. The grids, all constructed in the camera with the intervention of the movement of the arm, are aimed at inscribing the flow of time, and the abstraction of space on a single frame. The gestured compositions enter in dialogue with painting. The repetition of successive frames and the interruption of temporal and spatial progressions tackle the language of photography and cinema.
The photographs were exhibited in 2006 at The Palais the Glace, National Gallery, Buenos Aires, Argentina and were part of the exhibition Crossmediale II at the Gosia Koscielak Studio and Gallery, Chicago, Illinois [ more information ]
