press release

Pilar Corrias Gallery is pleased to present a two-person exhibition by Sam Lewitt and Lucy Raven, Wild Sync & Weak Locals.

In the ground floor gallery, Sam Lewitt (b. 1981, Los Angeles. Lives and works in New York) activates custom fabricated cooper-clad plastic heating circuits by maxing out the electrical energy available for lighting. Etched out of exposed photolithographic emulsion, the copper lines that heat up on these films trace-out pull quotes from the lexicon of infrastructurally administered flexibility.

In the lower gallery, Lucy Raven (b. 1977, Tucson. Lives and works in New York) recreates the industrial rotocaster as a system for projecting light. Two wall-mounted structures, Casters (2016), rotate 575w lamps in mirrored trajectories, illuminating the interior of the gallery in a figure X.
