VIDEO PISTOLETTO @LA CASTIGLIONE GALLERY

Inspired from the live works of Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto (1933-) of meticulously breaking large mirrors, here Sorenson instead damages large format Liquid Crystal Display video monitors. Due to the unpredictable nature of the breaking process, LCD screening units are transformed into unique objects, so viewers must reassess the materiality of these objects. Instead of looking through the screens, viewers must now look at the shattered patterns on the broken TVs, since their mediating function as windows to a virtual world is now inverted to present concrete and sculptural objects.
