Coinciding with the 11th edition of Art Basel Miami Beach this December, 101/exhibit in Miami will present Chambliss Giobbi’s solo project, entitled SE7N.
Excess, hatred and indifference are all sure descriptions, within Catholic dogmas and mythologies alike, of The Seven Deadly Sins. Visualizing these manifestations of inertia and obsession is made possible by New York – based artist Chambliss Giobbi.
SE7N is the culmination of 1000s of images photographed, shredded, torn, cut, reassembled, composed and affixed to large aluminum panels, 92 x 56 inches, and sealed within burnished layers of bees wax. Also included, a select collection of Giobbi’s personal portraits will also be featured throughout the entire gallery space.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a 44-page catalog with an essay by Walter Robinson. Mr. Robinson has written for numerous publications including contributing Editor at Art in America. He is the former Editor-in-Chief of Artnet Magazine.
