Pace is fortunate to report that we will open two exhibitions in Chelsea this evening. Please join us tonight, November 7th from 6 to 8 PM for the opening receptions of Kienholz: The Ozymandias Parade / Concept Tableauxat at 510 West 25th Street, and Michal Rovner: Topography at 508 West 25th Street.
Pace is pleased to present Topography, an exhibition of new work by Michal Rovner. Rovner’s work in video, sculpture, and installation creates a chain of associations, from the poetic to the political. Her work addresses issues of time and the human condition, and also touches on processes of archaeology and science.
The exhibition will be on view at 508 West 25th Street from Thursday, November 8 through Saturday, December 22. An opening reception will be held this Wednesday, November 7th from 6 to 8 p.m.

This work was created after the artist’s 2004 journey across Central Asia. At Rovner’s final stop on that trip, a remote oil drilling camp in The Republic of Kazakhstan, she found and filmed the elements from which she composed various works. Rovner used the jet of flame, which shoots from the tops of oilrig smokestacks as natural gas is bled off of the well, as her primary subject.
