David Horvitz

"Nostalgia (1440)"

15.05.2019 - 27.07.2019

Nostalgia (1440), 2019
Digital projection, 1440 minutes, unique

1440 photographs from the artist’s personal digital archive of daily snapshots documenting his life will be projected for one minute each for the duration of the 12 Saturdays of exhibition. The archive was made with various digital cameras since the early 2000s. After the photographs are projected the files

will be permanently deleted. Each photograph is shown for one last moment, whether witnessed or not, as the archive is slowly erased. The title refers to Hollis Frampton’s film Nostalgia (1971).

David Horvitz (lives in Los Angeles) works with installation, photography, mail, performance, sound, artist books, watercolor, digital media, text and film.

His practice revolves around notions regarding the  individual’s relationship to time, distance and the reappropriation of human experience. Horvitz has participated in numerous exhibitions in venues such as: La Criée, Centre d’Art Contemporain, Rennes (2019); S.M.A.K., Gent (2018); Palais de Tokyo,

Paris (2017); HangarBicocca, Milan (2017); Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus (2016); MOCAK Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Kraków, (2016); NOMAS Foundation, Rome (2016); Israel Museum, Jerusalem (2016); Mambo Bologna, Bologna (2015); Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen (2015) and New Museum, New York (2014). He will be featured in the upcoming group exhibition snap+share: transmitting photographs from mail art to social networks, at SFMOMA in March 2019.

His work is currently on view in Various venues around Venice with the project "435 ponti e qualche scorciatoia”, Curated by Silvia Guerra,
