Nonprojections for New Lovers, the new Hugo Boss Prize exhibition,  showcases work by artist and experimental publisher, Paul Chan. The artist’s “nonprojections” expand the concept of the moving image as medium, as they use project onto thin air, not a screen or wall. “I wanted to create a new relationship with the notion of what a projection is,” he said. “Moving images are projected fairly regularly on sides of buildings, giant LCD screens, taxicabs. I wanted to understand what a projection is, without it having to be part of that continuum. Anything that projects out and becomes a rectangular square format is the same to me now, no matter how colorful, how spectacle-like, how important the images or the information,” he says. The exhibition is on view through May 13.
