Love Me

June 21 - July 28, 2012

(Curated by Molly Sampson and Andrea Serbonich)

“He took an ordinary article of life… [and] created a new thought for that object.’ (M. Duchamp, ‘The Richard Mutt Case,’ The Blind Man, April 1917)

Benrimon Contemporary is pleased to announce Love Me, a group exhibition featuring site specific installations, sculptures, and works on canvas created by Adam Bateman, Piper Brett, Michelle Carollo, Travis Childers, Alastair Levy and Hyungsub Shin. Their works demonstrate the varied effects manipulating the banal can achieve.

All six artists give their found objects new fates, although that fate differs in its relationship to the object’s past. The objects- however transformed or static- have abandoned their usefulness, and instead ask to be appreciated in their new roles as anthropomorphic inhabitants, nostalgic triggers, poetic symbols, or mere artistic material.

Benrimon Contemporary is located at 514 West 24th Street, 2E, New York, NY 10011 between 10th and 11th Avenues

SIGHT (UN)SCENE Contemporary Landscape
Shay Kun, Amanda Burnham, Simon Patterson, Dimitri Kozyrev, Trey Speegle, Christopher Mir, Jorge Mayet, Amanda Ross Ho, Tom Bamberger, Julia Oschatz, Kunié Sugiura

Benrimon Contemporary, 514 W24th St., NYC (2nd FL)


Group exhibition featuring paintings, photographs, works on paper and sculpture by a selection of international artists.

Historical landscape paintings call to mind bucolic yet contrived scenes where every tree, rock and cloud appear carefully placed to capture a pastoral moment in time. This exhibition challenges the notion of classical landscape art, exposing the unseen and forgotten, forcing the viewer to reconsider what defines this pillar of art history through a contemporary lens.
