See Something (@ English Kills!)
APRIL 14 – MAY 20, 2012.
Opening Saturday, April 14, From 6 to 10pm.
English Kills Art Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Andrew Hurst. His previous show with English Kills was in 2009. For this exhibition, Hurst delves deeper into the collage and assemblage practices central to his highly process-based work. Inside this process, a wide variety of cast-off items and collected ephemera (photos, tapes, films, etc.) are loosely cataloged in a kind of psychic scrapbook, gestating indefinitely. Out of this gestation, Hurst’s creative instinct simultaneously acts as host and parasite to these materials; form and content begin to emerge, and a conceptual reclamation is achieved. Ultimately, this transformative process is imbued with an inherent kind of sad joy, related to memory, loss, and the disarming tension of rebirth and renewal.
Andrew Hurst’s creative achievements span over a wide variety of media. In 2011, he developed sound and video works for the Norte Maar/Julia K. Gleich ballet, “In the Use of Others for the Change.” In 2010, he had a solo exhibition at Storefront gallery in Brooklyn. In 2009, he premiered “Motion Pix Volume 1.,” a sound and video installation at English Kills Art Gallery. His performance work includes most notably his “Tarantula Ceremony” staged at Pocket Utopia in 2009. Hurst has also worked extensively as a poster and graphics designer.
