Maria Kozic: Nightmeeras

February 27 - March 27, 2014 at Posteritati
Opening Reception - Thursday February 27 at 6pm / RSVP on Facebook

Posteritati is pleased to present a new exhibition by Brooklyn artist Maria Kozic.

Kozic's work straddles the line between darkness and light, humor and horror, the superficial and the internal. The mutability of any one thing into another is an ongoing aspect of her work. In Nightmeeras, Kozic explores the theme of mutability as expressed through the horror and science fiction films of the last century. Kozic:

Frankenstein's monster made of parts of others and beings made from machines coming to life. These are some of the things that have inspired me to meld a troubled anxious world with the discourse of film. This is not a dystopian manifesto it's just a way of trying to make sense out of things. I see a future in science. Science is continually surprising me with bringing forth the reality of sci-fi themes. I've always said that the alien machine in Lost in Space TV show instantly manifesting anything you want from a picture would one day come true. Everyone laughed at me when I'd say those things.

Give me a robot dog that can be my companion, one that looks feels acts like a dog but with a computer for a brain that can tell you who that actor is in the scene while we are on the sofa watching movies together. Maybe it could eat popcorn too.

Classic movie monsters and robots are the stars of Nightmeeras, which is why we are mounting our first ever exhibition of fine art in our 20 year history.

Kozic's work has been included in a number of important exhibitions as well as numerous solo and group shows. Some of her shows include: Popism (National Gallery of Victoria, 1982), From Another Continent (ARC Museum of Modern Art Paris, 1983), Aperto (Venice Biennale, 1986), Birth of Blue Boy (Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, 1992), Blue Boy (Soho Festival, New York, 1996), Taking Things Seriously (Princeton Press, at N+1, New York, 2007), Collide-o-Rama (Hazelhurst Gallery, NSW, 2009).

Work by the artist is held in major museum collections including the Australian National Gallery, Art Gallery NSW, the Museum Of Contemporary Art Australia and the National Gallery of Victoria; as well as in private collections in Japan, USA and London.
