Justin Matherly: Pathos the Pathetic
January 25, 2020 - March 14, 2020
Galerie Eva Presenhuber:
Zahnradstrasse 21,
8005 Zürich

American artist Justin Matherly uses Greek and Roman antiquity as a jumping-off point for his weird, contorted sculptures. This exhibition presents new work that showcases his interest in statues, columns, and reliefs as well as his production process, where forms are first carved out of XPS insulation foam then cast in concrete, gypsum, or fiberglass resin. Each piece has an intentionally imperfect surface, underscoring the disparity between his work and the perfection usually associated with ancient sculpture.
