Oren Pinhassi

RESIDENCY: 3 JULY - 15 AUGUST 2019

 

EXHIBITION: 15 AUGUST - 15 OCTOBER 2019 

During his residency at Castello di San Basilio, Oren Pinhassi produced a new body of work installed, on site, amongst the Berlingieri collection. Through collapsing traditional categories and notions of architecture, nature and the body, Pinhassi’s sculptures and installations invoke public and private spaces more commonly associated with the social relations of the corporeal. The materiality of his work centres on a pigmented plaster and sand composite, which he uses methodically to painstakingly build up his objects. Whilst these objects exude a familiar sense of place, recalling modernism in their uniformity and concrete appearance, Pinhassi’s environments propose an altogether more fluid space - one in which rigid delineations no longer exist. 

Pinhassi graduated from the Yale School of Art in 2014. Recent shows include Second Nature at Edel Assanti, London, 2018; This is Not a Prop at David Zwirner in New York, 2018. Springs at the Petach Tikva Museum of Art, Israel, 2017. Completed residencies include Palazzo Monti, Brescia, 2019, Outset Contemporary Art Fund’s Bialik Residency, 2017, the Shandanken Project at Storm King Sculpture Park, New York, 2016. Pinhassi has been awarded numerous prizes including Pollock-Krasner grant, 2019; Fannie B. Pardee Prize, Yale School of Art, 2014; The Art Slant Prize, 2014; Shlomo Witkin Prize, 2011 and the Excellence Program Scholarship, Israeli Ministry of Education, 2011. Pinhassi lives and works in New York City.
