FORECAST

Piotr Chizinski

Permanent Research Project (PRP) [link]
Dallas, Texas
April 2-22, 2018

Reception: Saturday, April 14, 2018 from 6-9 PM

PRP is proud to present the work of New York based artist Piotr Chizinski. With a focus on disaster relief and infrastructural bias, his newest work considers the role of electronic frequencies as an invisible natural resource: an open network rich with pollution and gradually removed from public access.

The exhibition takes the form of cast components mimicking an impromptu disaster beacon.  A large antenna broadcasts a 1965 Public Service Announcement to a television within the gallery as a form of backwards innovation to access public commons. With references to the invisible threat of radiation from fallout, the work examines our privileging of the visible as and we are bombarded by the imperceptible.

His choice of broadcast, a helpful “how-to” program on cleaning radioactive particles from your potatoes and canned food, is set against a 1964 forecast predicting the rate of technological advancement, further highlighting the cruel optimism of technology against the concerns of the domestic.

Piotr Chizinski was born and raised in Falls Village, Connecticut.  He currently lives and works in New York City and is the Head of Media Arts at the Guggenheim Museum.  He earned a BFA in Sculpture/Photography from Texas Tech University and a MFA from Cornell University.  In 2011, he was awarded the Jacob K. Javits Fellowship from the U.S Department of Education.  Piotr has participated in many national and international exhibitions and residencies and continues a practice that seeks to engage the public with a view to shape and transform human action and historical experience.
