Anatomize A screening of GIFs at Transfer Gallery, Brooklyn
Anatomize is a collection of GIFs assembled for screening. Web versions of the GIFs will be available at this url a few days after the first screening. The organizational principle for this assortment of images is: body parts disassociated from the body. Seen here is a mixture of work that is old and new; political, adorable, gory, and funny; composed of organs, limbs, and faces.
Transfer Gallery, November 9, 2013
The screening is going to be held on the closing of my show Trunks Stems & Heads. Please come, have a drink, and look at this massive fleshy collection of GIFs. Transfer Gallery is described by art critic Paddy Johnson as “a gallery that focuses on artists who live in the digital world and make work in the physical.”

These photographs are from a - New York based - Indonesian photographer. This incredibly intimate project documents two aspects of his life - his family in Singapore and his recent partner in New York. There is a clear tension between the two lives he is photographing and alex says this project is: “a means to reconcile my detachment from my family with an intimate detail of my personal life that they have yet to discover.” See more of his work here.
Colin McFayden is kind of really cool. I guess I should like, finally take a bus in NYC or something.
My friend Kelly is such a babe.
This band is awesome.
Swag from Rollin Leonard at Transfer Gallery: “Trunk, Stem and Heads”
TRUNKS, STEMS, & HEADS - a solo exhibition from Rollin Leonard
The Transfer Gallery is an exhibition space dedicated to bring talents from the world of digital online art and into an IRL setting, based in Brooklyn, New York. The latest upcoming show is from artist Rollin Leonard, whose works uniquely explores the transformation and manipulation of the human body creatively within a digital format.
The focus of his first solo exhibition is the human form — organs, limbs and torsos are strewn about, arranged into impossible creatures, disfigured through collision, and installed as highly aestheticized, meticulously polished piles of digitally mutilated forms. The work is shiny and fleshy, and offers a new take on portraiture that captures the shifting perception of the physical self in our contemporary digital moment.
Human faces, bodies, and familiar objects are frequent subjects for the artist. He is interested in our innate ability to recognize the objects despite scrambling or distorting the image. A face, a subject with high visual elasticity, is especially resistant to being obscured or lost in pattern. Just as you see faces in wood grain, clouds, and shadows,
your mind easily knits human form together even when fragmented.
The artist’s photographic practice serves as the basis for this work. After capturing his subjects at precise angles, Leonard manipulates their bodies into highly composed and calculated compositions of looped moving image, digital collage, and plexiglassinstallation pieces.
The show opens on October 12th (this Saturday). You can find out more about the show and the gallery from Transfer’s website here
