BROOKLYN, N.Y., Sept. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ADOLFO DORING's POSTED 162 GRAMS is his first solo exhibition. It is on view at ART 3 gallery, 109 Ingraham Street, Bushwick, Brooklyn. The exhibition is based on Doring's conceptual book entitled: "POSTED 162 grams", created by the artist out of images he posted on INSTAGRAM from August 16, 2014 to September 2, 2015. Each image was assigned a meta-data to differentiate 81 portraits from 81 environments. The second meta-data entry assigned was the number of likes each posted image received on the social media platform. The artist organized the order of the resulting compositions by flipping a coin. This database-coin flip process created the diptychs as they appear in the book and in the show.
Each image is exquisitely composed, lit, and presented as a silver-gelatin print. The young women depicted in POSTED 162 GRAMS are captured expressing a sensual yet tragic side of beauty, their portraits and evocative stories appear randomly.
Doring has kept his passion for photography uncompromised. His work in this show proves his deep commitment to art and its relationship to today's social landscape.
Prior to POSTED 162 GRAMS Doring's film and installation "COMING SOON, COMING SOON TO A THEATRE NEAR YOU" depicts the artists' preoccupation with how banal entertainment has become a surrogate for life experience. The installation was acquired for the permanent collection of the Museo Laboratorio di Arte Contemporanea in Rome, Italy. It was originally exhibited at The White Box Center-Armory Show in 2014, and Art 3 in May 2014.
