Andrew Kreps Gallery is pleased to announce Walks and displacements, an exhibition that brings together eleven artists whose work reflects an engagement with pre-existing source materials. Working in disparate media, they share a lyrical approach that works to abstract the original while maintaining its integrity, creating new aesthetic and emotive experiences with objects, images, bodies, videos and sounds. What emerges across these investigations are shared sensibilities, as well as overlapping strategies of erosion, stratification, embedding, and association. This allows the exhibition to unfold similarly to the works themselves – a walk from one place to another, that bears with it the accumulative traces of both decisions made, and what one carries with them.
