SHOW ROOM is proud to present new work by Zachary Bruder alongside the Found Drawings of Anne Deleporte at DRAWING NOW, Paris. The exhibition will be open from April 11th to April 14th at the Carrousel du Louvre.
Zachary Bruder’s drawings summon poetic forms out of a strict set of parameters. Following the reductionist logic of post-war German and American painting, Bruder appropriates cultural symbols, treating them as empty artifacts to be redirected for his own use. The end results are elegant geometric arrangements.
The polygonal forms are archetypes, and they recall an endless stream of political and cultural motifs that are self-generating and self-effacing. The shaped panels, much like flags, convey messages. Yet they function like the ruins of ancient buildings: these symbols point beyond the limits of our knowledge. In the permutations of structure and content, Bruder’s active vessels demonstrate the spectrum of states between genesis and entropy.
Zachary Bruder was born in 1984 and lives and works in New York City. His recent exhibitions include Greasy Pink, curated by French Neon in New York, NY; The Color Gray at Homeland, in Houston, TX; and The Brucennial 2012, curated by Vito Schnabel and the Bruce High Quality Foundation in New York, NY.
Anne Deleporte, Found Drawing No. 7, 2013
Ink on newsprint, 23” x 35”
Anne Deleporte’s Found Drawings series was created in the rotary press of a New York newspaper, in the first daily round of ink calibration, in those moments where everything goes awry. When the image escapes its frame, it becomes an accidental by-product of the printing process, where information is now illegible. The result is presented in its raw reality. Newspaper pages distant from their intended use are now reincarnated into surreal landscapes, suspended lightning, and highly saturated objects of nature.
Anne Deleporte works in New York and Paris. Her work has been shown at The New Museum, New York, NY; the Santa Monica Museum of Art, CA ; Centres Georges Pompidou, Paris; and the Paco Imperialle de Rio de Janiero. A solo show of her work at La Galerie Rue Visconti, Paris, is planned for April – June, 2013.
