Appropriate, perhaps, to the gallery name, the Rotterdam-based artist will present a series of illustrations with ink, graphite and coloured pencil on paper, along with some publications, under the acronymic show title and umbrella term for his drawing and painting practice conceived of by the artist in 2013.
Scaling back from recent immersive installations, CGI, video games and rule-based performances —such as his ongoing Proxyah exhibition series or late last year’s Lament of Ur joint show with Joey Holder —the press release says the meaning of Timofeev’s S.T.A.T.E. is deliberately ambiguous and multi-layered: “truncated unknowns; a delineated space governed by a unifying structure; a psychological platform that engenders an introspective mind-set; a variable condition used to run a programmable system”.
