Description


Incorporating modest materials and layered with metaphorical associations, the exhibition is an elegiac commentary on the impermanence of life and human endeavor. One installation consists of a line of clay heads that stare at television sets implanted in the back of the head that precedes it. The strange iconography of the heads, pocked and etched with age, alludes to a collective subconscious memory of unrecorded civilizations. Encased in a vitrine in the manner of archaeological museums, a second installation displays drawings on used tea bags aligned like a field of gravestones or a miniature Stonehenge. In the third installation, pieces of paper with hieroglyphic-like writing flap in the breeze created by a fan – the winds of time. A master of evocative lighting, Brodsky will also exhibit paintings, applied directly to the surface of light boxes.
