FOXY PRODUCTION – 617 W 27TH ST – CHELSEA – NY
FOXY PRODUCTION PRESENTS ‘Nul’ – a group exhibit curated by London-based artist DICK EVANS. ‘Nul’ brings together seven European artists, including Evans, Salvatore Arancio, Anders Clausen, VALIE EXPORT, Simone Gilges, Lars Laumann, and Nedko Solakov, whose work relates in differing ways to loss, reduction or vacancy. Combined, the works in ‘Nul’ produce an uncanny sense of dissolution.” – press release
SOME PIX FROM THE OPENING – MAY 15, 2008
currently going live – WED MAY 28/7:32 PM
London-based artist DICK EVANS curated the show and, luckily, also presents some of his own plexiglas boxes.
an array of DICK EVANS plexiglas boxes starts off the show – to good effect.
DICK EVANS’ plexiglas boxes – “consider the possibility of absolute zero. these almost empty vitrines contain remnants of works that have been abandoned by the artist, left to gather dust in a corner of his studio for year.” – press release
DICK EVANS. . . “wax, candles and dust produce landscapes of comic emptiness that are at nce aportrait, an envoronmenta; calendar, and an image in negative of his studio” – press release
.. what about, just a thing of tender beauty to consider…
