Paris Art Week: Suprainfinit participates in SATELLITE OF LOVE, multi-gallery collaborative exhibition in Paris
SATELLITE OF LOVE is a project initiated by Double V Gallery, highlighting the collective dimension of the art world and promoting the idea of collaboration in the art world. The exhibition brings together a community of forward-thinking galleries during Paris Art Week.
We are delighted to present the works of artists Indrikis Gelzis and Christian Jankowski in the company of other galleries that share our vision of collaboration and community.
INDRIKIS GELZIS (b. 1988, Riga, Latvia) received his Master's degree from the Visual Communications department at the Art Academy of Latvia in 2014, and graduated from the HISK – Higher Institute for Fine Arts in Ghent, Belgium in 2016. Indrikis Gelzis’ metal sculptures solidify abstract representations of graph stocks, but with a refusal to use actual data. Fleshed out of a virtual image, the sculptures contain a laborious process of cutting, welding, burning, bending, assembling, oiling, and sewing, and ultimately weld together sounds, tensions, and cavities that end up performing an uncanny visual language collectively. Selected solo and group exhibitions: Watery Day’s Eye, Kim?

CHRISTIAN JANKOWSKI (b. 1968, Göttingen, Germany) studied at the University of Fine Arts, Hamburg and is considered one of the most influential contemporary conceptual artists. In his works, he focuses on performance, film, video and photography, but also employs a variety of media, including painting, sculpture and drawing. Jankowski initiates collaborations between contemporary visual art and other professional worlds such as those of religion, business, politics and entertainment. Recent solo and group exhibitions include: Overbeck Society, Lubecker Museen, Germany, 2023; the 4th Industrial Art Biennale, Labin, Croatia, 2023; Sisters & Brothers, Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz, Austria, 2023; Maybe Tomorrow, 16th Bienal de Cuenca, Ecuador, 2023; Travelling Artist, Tubingen, Germany, 2022; TICKET TO THE FUTURE, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany, 2022; Sender and Receiver, Fluentum Berlin, Germany, 2020; the Bangkok Art Biennale, 2020; Weather Flag, josegarcia, Mexico City, Mexico, 2020. In 2016, he curated the 11th edition of Manifesta in Zurich, becoming the first artist to assume this role. He participated at the Venice Biennale in 1992 and his works have been included in many public and private collections.
