Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis: Friday, 27 March 2009

"Between Beach Ball and Rubber Raft"
reception: Friday, March 27th, 5pm

Between Beach Ball and Rubber Raft is a group exhibition examining transcendental strategies in the face of contemporary banality. Pursuing marginal ideas and margin as an ideal, this show confronts static dread and the burden of existence. Photographic documentation, sculpture, and installation all become vapor, and dichotomies of body and object, presence and memory, in turn, reveal a definition of gas, and maybe even poetry.

This exhibition features sculpture by Paul Lee, who contorts the materiality and intention of everyday objects for melancholic ends. In a lifelong artistic work, artists BREYER P-ORRIDGE apply the cut-ups of mentor William Burroughs to their very own body, seeking to exit one container for a “third gender.” Alongside, Steve Van den Bosch’s videos and installations allude to an absent narrator in a present space.

This exhibition is curated by William Gass. Hours: Wed thru Sat 10-5, Sun 11-4
