MAIL ORDER MONSTERS LONDON
Max Wigram Gallery announces a group exhibition curated by Kathy Grayson. Mail Order Monsters brings to London, for the first time, a group of young American artists.
Tapping into an underground music and graffiti vibe the selection of works in the show also finds reference in computer-programme aesthetics. Taking its title from a 1980s videogame (which allowed you to build your own monster) the show suggests an approach to the figuration in contemporary art practice which brings together fictional fantasy with the post-human figure of techno-dystopia, depicting the body as broken, decaying, uncanny and monstrous.
This exhibition was previously hosted by Peres Projects, Berlin; Deitch Projects, New York; and Andreas Melas, Athens.
Featuring: Jules de Balincourt, Mat Brinkman, Ry Fyan, Tomoo Gokita, Joe Grillo , Evan Gruzis, Ben Jones, Misaki Kawai, Eddie Martinez, Taylor Mckimens, Takeshi Murata, Anders Oinonen, Aurel Schmidt , Francine Spiegel, Dennis Tyfu and Jaimie Warren
