Daniel Marzona is pleased to announce the opening of a solo exhibition with works by Aron Mehzion (b. 1970 in Asmara, Eritrea). @danielmarzona #danielmarzona. According to Duchamp, three-dimensional things which are familiar to us are merely projections of four-dimensional objects. This being the reasoning behind several of his works and particularly pertinent for his well-known “The Large Glass“. Tellingly, Aron Mehzion utilizes a piece of glass in a similar way as a surface to project four-dimensional geometry onto. This makes him the first person since Duchamp to artistically explore conceptual spaces in the fields of physics and, more specifically, in supergravitation and superstring theory.
