September 20th – October 30th
Opening reception: Monday, September 20th, 6- 8.

In the Project Room, Luxe Gallery is happy to present new photographs and video work by Miguel Soares.
Based in Lisbon, Soares is one of the leading digital artists of the new generation in Portugal.
In the 90’s, he developed work that ranged from photography, installation to video and sound, and in 2000, he turned to the exploration of 3D animation software which became his main tool of expression. He also joined the largest Portuguese Quake clan, as part of the international Internet gaming community.

Under his alter ego “Migso”, Soares composes electronic music which he integrates in his 3D animations and releases as audio CD’s. Many of his videos are made for -and in collaboration with- music groups like Negativland (2003), Sack & Blumm (2000) and Roberto Musci and Giovanni Venosta (2001). With the San Francisco Bay Area group, “Negativland,” known for its struggle against restrictive copyright laws in the 90’s, Soares created “Time Zones” – where he investigates the use of media as a vehicle for psychological warfare, and of
computers to control the “imperfections” of mankind.

Soares’ photographs featured in Luxe’s Project Space comment on mankind’s relationship to the surrounding environment and the use / misuse of technology.
“H2O” is his most recent 3D animation: a humorous reportage both distant and ironic view of man-made debris that end up underwater. Are fish adapting themselves to these alien objects?

In 2001, Soares was invited to participate in “Situation Zero: Recent Art from Portugal” at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco. Recent exhibitions include: Galeria Graca Brandao, Oporto (Portugal); Location One, New York; Centre
Georges Pompidou, Paris (France); The Stenersen Museum, Oslo (Norway).

Concurrent to this exhibition is Rick Levinson’s Acts of Faith in the main gallery.
