Galleria Mario Iannelli will host the second solo exhibition of Norwegian artist David Prytz. Entitled “Exocenter”, the show features new sculptures, recent drawings and a supplementing sound piece. The exhibition will be running from 3 May until 30 June, 2017.

The word “Exocenter” is a neologism that refers to the way we organize ourselves in our surrounding and how we comprehend our existence in relation to the world we live in. Derived from the concepts of geocenter and heliocenter – both of them made up to locate the human being at a certain point within the universe – the exocenter describes the lack of a de nite center and how any point that is somehow in relation to others will be a center by itself.

David Prytz uses coordinate systems like the Cartesian to create structures, that refer to the universe and space. By doing so, he investigates the complexity of time and space and the relativity of the concept of a center. By treating every element as a center for itself, questions of eternity, in nite space and our individual rules and affections are being asked.
