The Sunday Painter is pleased to announce the first London exhibition of Los Angeles based artist Pascual Sisto (Spain), in conjuction with PAMI (Peckham artists Moving Image Festival). ‘Push / Pull (my Luck is your Misfortune)’ is the title of Sisto’s 2006 video installation and consists of two opposing large scale projections depicting a vortex constructed entirely from lanes of approaching and retreating traffic. As with a lot of Sisto’s video work a seamless digital manipulation allows an impossible scenario to arise from the ordinary. Sisto’s treatments are highly astute; using symmetry and repetition he constructs contained environments in which the implausible is given, for a time, an ironic reality.
