1301PE is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition with acclaimed artist Ana Prvački. Ranging from her DIY catalogues, videos and performances, Prvački's work is known for exploring the limitations and possibilities of language and its cultural parameters. In her videos, services, concoctions and drawings Ana Prvački uses a gently pedagogical and comedic approach in an attempt to reconcile etiquette and erotics.
This exhibition will focus on two bodies of work: Porn Scores and Tent, Quartet, Bows and Elbows. These works play with the idea of erotic in music, both in how it could be written and preformed. Prvački makes visible these thoughts, which creates an uneasy feeling within our cultural mores.
Ana Prvački was born in Yugoslavia and lives and works in Los Angeles. Her work has been included in many international exhibitions: dOCUMENTA 13, Sydney Biennial 2007, Singapore Biennial 2006, and the Turin Triennale 2005.
She has developed projects for venues and institutions such as the Hammer Museum (Los Angeles), Centre Pompidou (Paris), Castello di Rivoli Museo d'Arte Contemporanea (Turin), Smart Museum of Art (Chicago), Bloomberg HQ (NYC), Art in General (NYC), Artists Space (NYC), Umoca (Salt Lake City) and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (Boston).
