AAKASH NIHALANI • ISLANDS
April 26th - May 14th, 2013
SIGNAL is pleased to present Islands, an exhibition of new site-specific works by Aakash Nihalani.
Aakash's style is recognizable across the wide variety of mediums he works in -- geometric shapes on a flattened visual plane, employing different techniques of contrast and forced perspective to give the impression of virtual depth or movement. His public interventions mostly require only tape or cardboard to create illusions that engage the viewer and surrounding architecture in a disorienting visual play. Two-dimensional objects may seem to recede distantly, be seen simultaneously from multiple points of view, or appear impossibly to be superimposed in space.
