EMANUEL RÖHSS

Boutique litigation

22/03 – 21/06/2015

Emanuel Röhss has produced a body of site specific works following on from a residency in Rome and preceding his solo exhibition at T293, Rome. The exhibition includes three sculptures and one large canvas work and features the same themes of his solo exhibition in Rome – namely the private realm of Los Angeles domesticity, residencies of particular emblematic character in relation to the development of this locality, and staged reality, the home as a private island.

Emanuel Röhss is a multi-disciplinary artist, working through sculpture, painting and installation with a particular focus on site specificity. His practice interrogates and extrapolates the relationship between art and architecture, functionality and aesthetics. There is a parallel trajectory in Röhss’ work, to the Duchampian ready-made, that explores agendas of appropriation and facsimile.
