LOOSE ENDS | MARY GRISEY, FAYE MULLEN, JÉRÔME NADEAU, DEBORAH WANG
January 14 — March 6, 2016
Each decay is a form of transformation into other living things, part of the great rampage of becoming that is also unbecoming. It is cruel, it is death, and it is also life, degeneration and regeneration, for nearly all living things live by the death of other things.
— Rebecca Solnit
TYPOLOGY is pleased to present Loose Ends, curated by Noa Bronstein and featuring sculpture, video, and photo-based works by Mary Grisey, Faye Mullen, Jérôme Nadeau, and Deborah Wang.
Exploring the spaces between states of being, the exhibition traces the cyclical and vernacular places between appearance and disappearance, presence and absence, construction and deconstruction. Each work questions the currency of permanence. Moving between and within, a new kind of relic is realized, one that is both past and present, confined only to the metamorphic.
Loose Ends will be accompanied by an exhibition catalogue with curatorial essay by Noa Bronstein and original writings by each artist, plus full documentation of the show.
Please join us for a public opening reception and tour of the exhibition with the curator and artists on
Thursday, January 14, from 5–8 pm. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome.
There will be three other exhibitions opening in the building this evening, including the Koffler Gallery’s new show featuring Howard Podeswa!
