The Flux and the Puddle

For his fourth solo exhibition at Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York, David Altmejd hypnotizes visitors with large-scale monumental installations stretching across three exhibition spaces.

At the show’s core is “The Flux and the Puddle’”, an intricately layered slice of another world that fills the gallery’s first room.

Seemingly infinite layers of matter are contained within the translucent, reflective and stacked structure, housing various information and media used throughout the artist’s oveure such as werewolves, plaster figures, bird men, heads, smashed mirrored panels, and explosions of resin fruit.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
