SHOW EXTENDED through Saturday, November 30.
What Pipeline is happy to present new collaborative works by Marte Eknæs & Nicolau Vergueiro. Janitoria
continues the conversation last seen in Scrapscape
, their show at Exilo Studios, Los Angeles.
Janitoria is in the rearguard. Manifesting maintenance, repurposing, consumption and waste. The brush and trash can are the main icons transposed into characters in this tableaux. Objects and buildings become flashy facades, patterns and acts unfolding in their own moments of public functional hysteria. Anthropomorphized utility, as the consumed becomes the consumer.
A talk with both artists will take place at Susanne Hilberry Gallery on October 26 at 3 pm. What Pipeline will be open from noon to 3 pm on this day.
Eknæs's solo show Perpendicular Picture
is on view at Susanne Hilberry in Ferndale, MI, through Nov. 16, 2013.
