Slag Gallery is pleased to present, The Apocalypse - Sisyphus part IV, a new monumental sculpture by Marius Ritiu.  The exhibition is Ritiu's second solo show with Slag Gallery.  In 2019, Ritiu began the cycle entitled "Sisyphus" by creating rocklike copper sculptures that he dubbed “meteorites” and examining the way they can be contextualized in different environments. The project has reached its 4th episode: “The Apocalypse (Sisyphus part IV).” The previous segments are: "Highway to the Moon (Sisyphus part III)," "Rock 'n Roll (Sisyphus part II)," and "Milky Way (Sisyphus part I)."

The Tale of a Found Dimension

September 01, 2017 to October 08, 2017
Marius Ritiu highlights in his work the importance, here, on Earth, of an “overview effect” approach (usually experienced by those traveling to space). Ritiu believes in an imperative need to create a planetary society with the united will to protect this ”pale blue dot”, Earth. Cultural differences, religion, tribes, nations, race, these are all creative expressions and variations that should and could be celebrated, but instead they become symbols that are all too often used to create suffocating boundaries. By zooming out and reconsidering our position in the Universe we can learn to pay more attention to fields like science and art. As technology and information enable greater mobility of ideas, goods and people, the role of the physical border is shifting.
