All Visual Arts is pleased to announce “The Raft of Medusa”, an exhibition by Wolfe von Lenkiewicz running 13 September –  20 October 2013. This new body of work builds on the artist’s previous coalescences of disparate imagery: from contemporary to historic, high art of the Renaissance to icons of popular culture.

“The Raft of Medusa” continues to stretch these ideas. However, while previously Lenkiewicz has driven contextual imagery together from disparate time periods and geographies, in this exhibition the scope is deliberately narrowed. Flattening history, the result perceived through the lens of the present becomes a historical deconstruction; challenging our notions of past and present, the work moves outside of history.

His point of entry in this case is Géricault and the nineteenth century. ‘Re-sequencing’ history through the existing visual language of his images, the artist engages in the elaborate project of creating a new visual syntax – and, here, in scale as never before.
