Celine is ecstatic to present the work of Judith Leupi and Toby Christian at Parallel Vienna.
Both artists practice have an ongoing concern for the object detached from its original environment and function; overlooked details from everyday architecture and structure, with an interested in the surface and materiality. The various attempts of translation and the possibility of giving the subject a new formal idiom through each of their interventions generate the potential of a new reference space to the viewer.
