Yossi Milo Gallery - Cities, a new body of work by Sze Tsung Leongy, zu sehen in New York und auf GoSee

Die Yossi Milo Gallery zeigt aktuell mit Cities die erste Soloausstellung des Fotografen Sze Tsung Leong in der Galerie. Bereits in 200 startete der Fotograf seine Projekt Cities; es dokumentiert den menschlichen Eingriff in die vorgefundene Natur und spiegelt somit den Zustand unserer Welt zum heutigen Zeitpunkt.

Die Galerie in ihrem Pressetext hierzu : "Viewed at the large scale, the photographs show the diverse forms and typologies that compose cities—the geometries of city planning, zoning layouts, street patterns, open spaces, monuments, towers, developments, churches, mosques, houses, offices.

These elements are shown not discretely, but in relationship to each other and in their wider and manifold contexts as reflections of the powers, beliefs, traditions, and economies that built them.

The accumulation of these forms also show how cities are prolonged accumulations of time— from a Roman amphitheatre overlooked by a cliff of recent concrete construction in Amman, to a Medieval cathedral rising above a flat, seemingly endless landscape in Ghent, to a colonial city center undulating over the Andean topography of Quito, to the postwar patchwork of histories of London, to the sinuous lines of highways engraving the attenuated landscape of Houston."

Sze Tsung Leong wurde 1970 in Mexico City geboren und verbrachte seine Kindheit in Mexiko, England und den USA. Er lebt zur Zeit in New York.

Seine Arbeiten findet man in den Sammlungen des Museum of Modern Art in New York, des San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, des High Museum of Art in Atlanta, des Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, des Brooklyn Museum of Art, der Deutschen Börse Art Collection oder auch der Yale University Art Gallery.
