GRIMM is pleased to announce the presentation of Complex Systems (2017) by Desiree Dolron (NL, 1963) at our New York gallery space. This exhibition marks the first solo presentation of the artist in the United States.

With her recent films and videos, Dolron adds a new dimension to her practice. Complex Systems situates itself in the broader context of Dolron’s film and video work, such as Uncertain TX (2016) and I will show you fear in a handful of dust (2016). Consistent with themes in her past photographic series these new works share ‘transcendence’ as a common thread.

Dolron’s work suggests a kind of otherworldly existence. Profound investigation combined with careful observation preludes the making of both Dolron’s photographs and films. Employing a minutely tuned artistic process, the resulting work combines serenity with insinuatingly composed images.

Complex Systems displays a digitally drawn flock of starlings, scattering throughout the sky in a loop of ever-changing patterns. Themes such as the fragility of being, impermanence and the dichotomy between the individual and the collective form the conceptual ground of inquiry. The title of the film is adopted from the scientific field of network research, which employs the term to define the complex interactions between different components of the same group.
