Opens Tonight (Oct 26) 6-8p:

Dawit L. Petros “Mahber Shaw'ate (Association of 7)”

Alexander Gray Gallery 508 West 26 St, NYC (#215)

“On view is a series of photographic tableaux of open cardboard boxes, depicting multiple locations including Marfa, TX; Santa Barbara, CA; Nazareth, Ethiopia; Saskatoon, Canada; and New York. In some instances, horizon lines and sea levels are marked by the geometric arrangements of the sculptural readymade boxes inserted into the landscape; in others, tightly arranged studio enactments denote a serial impulse. The body is a third element in these works, performing for the camera, yet obscured by the repeating form of the cardboard box.”
