Opening Sunday, January 12th at Simone Subal Gallery, New York is “An image as the _____ of a surface,” a solo exhibition by Julien Bismuth featuring a recent body of work ranging from video to silkscreens to audio pieces, and continues his inquiry into the mechanisms of communication. Bismuth’s practice reflects on the complex manner in which ideas are transmitted in artworks and subsequently in spoken or written language. For Bismuth, a work of art does not contain ideas. It does not even state them, at least not in the way of a sentence. What an artwork makes possible is the articulation an idea in language: it makes the viewer speak.


Opening Reception: Sunday, January 12th, 2014. 6-8pm.


“An image as the _____ of a surface” is on view through February 16th, 2014.
