Currently on view at Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York is “Juices,” a solo exhibition by David Altmejd. Altmejd’s language unfolds over three exhibition spaces, creating distinct environments that shift perceptions of matter and time, surface and structure, interior and exterior. The progression starts with “The Flux and The Puddle”, a deeply layered slice of a universe that fills the first room of the gallery. Altmejd’s ability to hold seemingly infinite layers of information manifests itself in a transparent, mirrored and multilevel structure that houses all of the varied bodies of work in his extensive practice: werewolves, plaster figures, bird men, heads, smashed mirrored panels, and explosions of resin fruit. With its complexity and depth, the work demands a physical experience. Altmejd’s work often draws a corollary between the body and architecture with architectural landscape punctuated by figurative elements or figurative sculptures blown up to gigantic scale or infected with inorganic material.
“Juices” is on view through March 8, 2014.
