For his first solo exhibition at Francescoa Pia Gallery, Tobias Madison is presenting a new body of work, all untitled, 2015.Made out of wood, polyurethane and epoxy resin they are framing or supporting structures for dried up iodine. The works present themselves as a problem: They cleanse but stain, they kill but cure, they seem like the body but are not the body. While what is being supported or framed seems to be blackened out, the works in their collective appearance are drawing out a framework for a house that perhaps ultimately only one person could live in.
Madison claims that they were not made with coherence in mind but rather and only for a certain manner of speaking, one that he sees as present when Francesca Pia herself is speaking.
On view until April 11.
