SOPHIA HAMANN + MARCELLO RAGONE IN PROGRESS

October 14 - December 31

Gaa Gallery is pleased to present IN PROGRESS, a two-person exhibition from artists Sophia

Hamann and Marcello Ragone.

In the gallery's main space Sophia Hamann will install HEFT— a deconstructed book

of photographs printed on paper. A cosmos of over 180 pages, the project is comprised of

photographs, film stills, and watercolors, all of which function as a rich capture of previous installations

and projects, as well as original artwork in its primary iteration. Hamann's work in IN PROGRESS

breathes with organic qualities of non-linear arrangement—the book can be read forward

and backward— and fluid physical adaptation—the book is installed in unique relation to the

gallery environment. With this work, Hamann explores the value in documentation and accrual, as

well as the inherent aesthetic connections found in the multiple gazes of a singular artist.

Marcello Ragone will exhibit a series of video pieces that consider the various functions of human

engagement with the physical world. Ragone's video work maintains a steady eye on the relationship

between mundanity and profundity; on microscopic matter and related macro-intellectual concerns.

We watch sugar dissolve; we count flies on the rim of a wastebasket; we listen to chocolate

candies being sucked clean of their synthetic shells. The human is present in Ragone's work, acting

as an agent of enlightened consideration of the small and often overlooked moments of human

experience.

Sophia Hamann (b. 1988, Hannover, Germany) lives and works in Braunschweig, Germany, where she

studied with Walter Dahn at the University of Arts. Hamann's cross-disciplinary work is largely

centered around initial photographic processes and secondary concerns of applied color, sequencing,

and sculptural installation. Her work has been featured in solo exhibitions at Gaa Gallery in Wellfleet,

MA, and Klinikum Wolfsburg in Wolfsburg, Germany, as well as numerous group exhibitions, including

Realism, Reality, Real (360 Degrees), Gallery Mario Kreuzberg, kotti-shop, Berlin, Germany and Gallery

Marcello Ragone (b. 1986, Friedrichshafen, Germany) lives and works in Braunschweig, Germany.

work at Salon Schmitz, Cologne; Competence Park, Friedrichshafen; Baumwollspinnerei Halle 12,

Leipzig; mhh-kestnerschau, Kestnergesellschaft, Hanover; KuBa-Kulturzentrum am EuroBahnhof,
