A multi-disciplined artist, Marc Ganzglass works in all media, including film, performance, publishing and installation. Employing a high degree of craft, Ganzglass enlists technical processes to create a distance between viewer, subject and object, opening up readings from multiple vantage points. Shifting between photography and craft, printmaking and documentation, Ganzglass’ work begins with a desire to defamiliarize the objects and structures that populate our daily lives. He uses technical processes to short circuit appropriated images and objects, creating new frames of reference. Ostensibly however, the real subject of the work may be it’s layering, in which allegory, material and observation all contribute to the formulation of a holistic image.
Marc Ganzglass has exhibited various projects internationally since 2005, including residencies and fellowships at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas, CPH AIR, Fabrikken for Kunst og Design in Copenhagen, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Residency in New York, the Kohler Arts and Industry Program in Wisconsin, and Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City, NY.
