Premiering at our gallery next!
New York artist Alex Schweder’s The Third Thing, will pour sensuality and sound into January’s dreary middle. Describing the experience of this inflatable installation as an effervescent cocktail of mirror, fur and milk – Schweder hints that a taste for his work is not acquired in polite society. Swelling and sagging, animated by the fill and empty of air, Schweder’s installation pursues his recent discovery that the inflatable architecture he has made for over a decade can be newly approached as sound producing instruments. Opening this possibility wider, Schweder has commissioned an eclectic group of sound artists to form an unlikely ensemble.
The Third Thing
January 15th – March 05, 2022
Opening January 14th, 2022
The Third Thing follows two breathtaking online exhibitions at the platform NewViewings whereby the digital renderings were inspirational for these analogue realisations in the physical gallery space. The exhibition explores the galleries ongoing interest in merging the digital and the analogue realm of artistic expression.
The Third Thing was made possible with a prestigious grant from The Pollock-Krasner Foundation awarded to Schweder in recognition of the exceptional quality of his artistic activities.
Parallel to the physical exhibition at the gallery The Third Thing will be shown online as a NewViewings project.
