Katerina Marcelja presents “Fragment Series,” an exhibition of prints for Open Source Gallery.

In “Fragment Series,” Marcelja works with clusters of graphic sequences etched on multiple plates. These sequences are then disassembled and recombined challenging boundary conditions and narrative logic . Marcelja’s prints operate much like her sculptural work–creating extensions of the spatial dynamics and questioning the integrity of form. These etchings work within a malleable landscape where continuity is fragmented and reestablished on various scales. The wild lines of her etchings are truncated by the boundaries of the geometric plates of ghostly greys and deep blacks only to re-emerge in another sequence, creating a structural dialog between the individual prints. Individual narratives emerge from the incessant recombination of sequences.

Marcelja’s prints engage the limits of physical space delineated by the etching plates, the print paper and the gallery space itself. “Fragment Series” establishes a continuous discourse throughout the gallery, deconstructing the borders of each individual print to construct a new architecture within the space. Marcelja’s etchings are juxtaposed to operate as a structure in and of themselves, while each print maintains its own integrity. Overlapped and overlaid the forms emerge with sculptural sensibility She creates a new space out of her prints with a vaguely familiar, but elusive, history.

Katerina Marcelja (b. 1971) is a visual artist who specializes in sculpture and printmaking. Marcelja was born in Las Vegas, Nevada and grew up in Rome, Italy. She studied sculpture at Boston University and Performance Studies at NYU. Her performance work “Arteria” was shown at Mladinsko Theater in Ljubljana. Her recent exhibitions include “Flights of Love” at Gallery Molly Krom, “Wet Wings and Wooden Sail” at Giacobetti Paul Gallery, and “Insubstantial Evidence” at Douglass Street Music Collective Gallery.
