JULIETTE DUMAS, ANDREW ERDOS,
DYLAN GAUTHIER, RIITTA IKONEN, 
GWENDOLYN KERBER, AARON TAYLOR KUFFNER

CURATED BY CLARA DARRASON & JENNIFER HOUDROUGE

JUNE 17 - JULY 16, 2016

The Chimney NYC is pleased to present Incantations: The Modern Cave, a group exhibition exploring the trace: human, natural or industrial. The ones left by our species as a testimony of our passage on earth, those created by artists sharing their perspective on the world, and others oscillating between natural and man-made, organic and manufactured. The exhibition explores the primal desire of contemporary artists to create in this geological era commonly referred as the age of the Anthropocene. 

The red industrial bricks, blocked cimented windows, metal beams and condemned chimney make of The Chimney a Modern cave. Six artists working across various mediums have left their own trace. Incantations: The Modern Cave both reveals and resolves the inherent conflict of an increasing industrial landscape in which nature strives to survive.

BUNK CLUB x BENOIT PLATEUS

BUNK CLUB PRESENTS:
FAN OF BENOIT PLATEUS

FRIDAY JUNE 3, 2016
7PM-10PM

The Chimney is pleased to invite Bunk Club to launch their latest “FAN OF” edition with Belgian artist Benoit Platéus. This will be accompanied by a presentation of a special edition of limited objects produced by Platéus in New York. For their 15th edition, Bunk Club will be presenting a series of “FAN OF” zines and editions by Benoit Platéus together with a special edition of the artist’s emblematic urethane jar-like sculptures. Made of chemical products used for photographic printing, these abstract jars are the result of an experimental and accidental process. By filling containers with urethane and pigments, the jar becomes an abstract object as the products harden and the different pigments dissolves and blends in an unpredictable manner. In between fluid abstraction and sculptural figuration, these works become three-dimensional pictorial spaces with a potential for image making. This Friday, twenty small sculptures will be installed at the center of The Chimney available for sale with a limited edition and artist’s book. Zine & edition 20$ | signed & numbered - edition of 50 Special edition 200$ - edition of 15 + 5ap For more info visit www.bunkclub.be and pre-order the edition via info@bunkclub.be
