"I wanted to capture the vibration and the unity of thousands of people put them all together and take away all that divides them," explains Paolo Regis. "I shoot the entire moment very seriously with natural light and without worrying then touch-ups" . @paoloregis

Paolo Regis's reportage is primarily focused on individuals and their environment, captured in the phenomenology of various interactions. Photographed in different countries, from Bangladesh Zanzibar, Berlin, Venice, Milan, London, Accra in Ghana, Varanasi and Bodhgaya, Regis shows how people communicate and socialise according to their historically decisive situations. @paoloregis

Paolo Regis analyses, decomposes and recomposes the force, manifested in the interaction and binding of two or more bodies. The motion vector of these spirits is transformed into a stream color, living fiber of what the artist defines as Human Power, the strength of the human. @paoloregis I am looking forward to new projects this spring and summer.

In Gilles Aillaud’s works, the twinned notions of spectacle and alienation find perfect form. Although grounded in the specific realities of the observable world, they also stand as a reminder of the conditions imposed by advanced capitalist culture.

Gilles Aillaud’s portraits of animals in zoo environments – his almost singular theme throughout much of the 1960s and 1970s – can be seen as a fusion of his political, philosophical and aesthetic beliefs.

With Payphone (three pointed star), 2019, @Alexis_Dahan incorporates three actual steel New York City payphones blending them together to form a new object. Through the acts of cutting, welding and polishing, the readymade is transformed into a cold shiny three-pointed star erected on the wall like a pagan idol. Formally used in the pre-cellphone world to allow communication, the three payphones are now engaged in a silent three-way conference call on each side of a steel triangle.

Alexis Dahan (b.1982) is a French artist and writer, and lives in New York since 2005. He completed his master’s degree in Literature and Philosophy in Paris and studied Journalism at New York University in 2007. Since his first exhibition at the Half Gallery in 2012, Dahan has created many public works including a commission by the Art Production Fund, an intervention with the Fire Department of New York and recently a site-specific sculpture at the Fondation CAB in Brussels. Dahan has been artist in residence at Mass MOCA and the International Studio and Curatorial Program (I.S.C.P.) As a writer, Dahan has published interviews with artists such as Joseph Kosuth, Jeff Wall, Gabriel Orozco, Lawrence Weiner, Giuseppe Penone, Barbara Kruger and Adrian Villar Rojas.

Aaron Young’s Crushed Barricade #3, 2009, represents a bent crowd-control steel fence that has been plated with 24-karat gold. The urban furniture serves the purpose of control over pedestrians and traffic, limiting access and encouraging certain directions. Firstly, in a destructive action, Young crushes the fence and gives it a new form that makes its initial function obsolete. Then, the steel surface was plated with gold, thus elevating the fence into a domain of near-religious preciousness, far away from its initial policing function. There is a political undertone with this sculpture. Power may be used to abuse or to protect, the same way the artist tampers with the physical integrity of the object and then cares for it by making it shine. @artistaaronyoung

Coburn Projects is proud to present Found and Ready, an exhibition featuring sculptures by Alexis Dahan, Tom Sachs and Aaron Young. The title echoes the idea of “ready-made” which describes the phenomenon of placing a mass produced object into an art context. Since Duchamp, this definition has evolved and has been relabeled with the trope “found-object”. This exhibition takes the term “found-object” literally and explores variations of this method when applied to elements that can be found on the streets of New York City.

Aaron Young's sculptures, such as spray-painted boulders and battered iron barricades recast in gold-plated cast steel, are interested in the figures and imagery of rebel and urban culture. I am excited to include one of Aaron's sculptures in the upcoming exhibition titled: Found and Ready. @artistaaronyoung
