CAYETANO FERRER Composite Arcade

Château Shatto is delighted to announce Cayetano Ferrer’s exhibition, Composite Arcade. It is the artist’s first exhibition at the gallery and his first solo presentation in Los Angeles in two years. An opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Saturday, September 20, from 6 – 9 pm.

Cayetano Ferrer subsumes formal styles of historical artifice, digests and conflates them, blurs and re-assembles them. His exhibitions are displaced experiences of coded space, where familiar patterns, surfaces, filters and patinas are grafted and elaborated into the theatrical space of the exhibition.

For his first exhibition at Château Shatto, Ferrer will produce an environment that plays to the ambiguous yet heavily scripted sites of civic and fictional space. Illuminated landmarks, natural formations and contrived facades sit within a kaleidoscopic array of artifice. Architectural ornament is overloaded and layered towards a redundant extreme, clearing a space in which architectural strategies may be re-built.

Composite Arcade invokes material phenomena that carry loaded histories: a tower that reaches up towards hubristic heights; a room with an optical inference of infinite expansion; authentic materials that merge with their own imitations. By composing a promenade of mnemonics, Ferrer treats space as a liquid slowly gelling with time.

Cayetano Ferrer was born in Hawaii in 1981 and currently lives in Los Angeles. He earned his BFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and MFA at the University of Southern California. Recent installations include Remnant Recomposition in the exhibition The St Petersburg Paradox at the Swiss Institute, New York; a collaboration with artists, architects and musicians at Human Resources under the moniker ‘Downtown Light and Sound’; a room modelled on the spectacular pastiche of Las Vegas casino interiors for Made in LA, 2012 and a billboard in Hollywood, displaying end credits for Hollywood itself.

The exhibition runs until November 1. Château Shatto is open Tuesday – Saturday, 12 – 6 pm, with appointments outside gallery hours welcome. Further inquiries may be directed towards gallery@chateaushatto.com.
