ERNESTO BURGOS: the tone was a synthesis of all the voices they had ever heard
Kate Werble Gallery
83 Vandam Street
New York, NY 10013
Opening: Friday, June 22, 6-8 PM
the tone was a synthesis of all the voices they had ever heard, Ernesto Burgos’ first solo exhibition in New York at first reframes and disrupts the spatial configuration of the gallery. His new sculptures reflect social unease through flipped and deconstructed forms, colors and materials. A destablized metaphor of destroyed object for society is literalized by an upended and destroyed sofa. The sofa, a symbol of domestic calm and sedentary life, is physically interrupted, destroyed and repurposed into something new and unknown.
