Fictions

Organized by Adam Marnie

January 9-February 7, 2015

Opening reception: January 9, 2015 6-8pm 

 

Derek Eller gallery is pleased to present Fictions organized by Adam Marnie. 

The first fiction of this show is its title. These artists pull directly from the world around them,

each in relentless investigation. Utilitarian and didactic exercises are given priority over the

inward gaze. Exacting contours divide the diverse works from each other, which operate as tips

of icebergs moving through a spectrum of languages, as an array of portals into kaleidoscopic

excess. Themes as divergent as memory, confession, forensics, advertising, sexuality and

authorship are butted up against one another, offering complex paradigms of truth and falsehood

with a photographic hinge.
