Leo Gabin is a dynamic collaborative entity that samples, edits and augments American culture, inspired by the contradictions and creative potential of the Internet as a medium. The gallery is pleased to present the first US solo show of Leo Gabin videos and paintings, which will open on March 5th, 2013 with a reception for the artist from 6-8PM. Leo Gabin will be featured at Independent, which takes place from March 7th through the 10th.
As user-generated content has become a core part of American culture in the preceding decade, ceaseless proliferation of socially shared footage posted on the Internet has provided a rich, fertile source of inspiration for Leo Gabin’s inventive 21st Century practice. The status of authorship itself has evolved and occupied various manifestations and associations, influencing and evolving how collective authorships operate within creative ecosystems.
Leo Gabin (Lieven Deconinck, Gaëtan Begerem and Robin De Vooght) have worked exclusively as a collective since 2000. They live and work in Ghent, Belgium and received degrees from the Royal Academy of Fine Art in Ghent. Leo Gabin has participated in exhibitions internationally, such as: Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, Peres Projects, Berlin, Center for Contemporary Art, Bruges, and Catherine Bastide, Brussels, among others.
