For this installation, Navin uses epoxy-putty to fully re-surface the interior of the gallery, suggesting the remnants of a yet to be discovered archaeological site. Effectively functioning as a high-tech cave, the gallery houses a two-headed Escalade which is masqueraded as a relic of a recently defunct society. To further the memorialization of object, a bright flame burns on the two lcd screens located centrally in the gallery. The usually terminal flickering of analog flames are replaced by a timeless and persistent stock-video campfire; burning electrically to material in memoriam.
In the newly opened sub-level gallery, Navin flaunts three monumental paintings. The richly textured abstract paintings are in fact 3D-printed facsimiles of traditional gestural abstraction. Here they serve as mediations of the traditional hand through artificial means, hailing the era of techno-Greenbergian ideals.
