Twofold, Peter Liversidge’s Representation of Duality at Sean Kelly Gallery, New York (10 Sep – 22 Oct)

Twofold, Peter Liversidge’s new solo exhibition is opening on September 10th at Sean Kelly Gallery, New York.

Known for his conceptually based practice wherein each work begins as a typewritten proposal, Twofold will present twelve of Liversidge’s proposals and ten realized works. Utilizing a wide range of mediums, including drawing, painting, performance, photography, and sculpture, the works on view in Twofold play with duality, both through their tangible materiality — being composed or consisting of two items, parts, etc., together — and in their psychology — having a double character or nature. Liversidge says, “No matter how close, in subject or proximity, two separate nearly identical images or objects cannot be seen with the same level of detail and concentration at exactly the same time. It is this conscious act of looking at or between two similar images / objects that is integral to the work.”

Peter Liversidge: InterstatePeter Liversidge‘s second multiple with The Multiple Store is Interstate, a true-to-scale American roadsign produced using (federal approved) US Interstate Green which was only made available to the public a couple of years ago. The font, also called Interstate, is scaled down proportionately to the scale of the work; the reflective material enables viewing at night. The work comes ready with wall fixings. Interstate can be mounted on poles and can also be exhibited outdoors, as it was recently showed at Jubilee Park, Canary Wharf.

All inquiries: please contact The Multiple Store: info@themultiplestore.org or +44 (0) 7760 666518.

Grenville Davey: House 2008 Steel and oak

The circle or disc is a recurring motif in Grenville Davey’s sculpture. House, an industrially spun steel vessel inverted, rusted and polished to a mahogany sheen, has a wooden handle set centrally, angled parallel to the dome.

Kenny Hunter: Black Swan 2013 Resin

Black Swan typifies Kenny Hunter’s use of anthropomorphic symbolism, the swan evoking human qualities of enduring partnership and love, while also alluding to ‘Black Swan theory’, a term used to describe inexplicable or unexpected events rationalised with hindsight, deriving from the fact that black swans were thought to be an impossibility. The piece exemplifies Hunter’s practice of transmuting historical ideas through sculpture.

Liliane Lijn: Lost Koan 2007 Glass-reinforced polyester, Perspex, fluorescent lights

A relatively recent version in Liliane Lijn’s series focusing on the shape of the cone, Lost Koan  has its parallel in the space above the earth’s poles where the solar wind meets with the earth’s magnetic field, referred to by astrophysicist Dr Stephen B. Mende as the ‘lost cone’.

Peter Liversidge: Interstate 2001 Aluminium (3mm), stove enamel, reflective materials, fixings (Edition of 10, published by The Multiple Store)

Interstate is a true-to-scale, reflective, American road sign produced using (federal approved) US Interstate Green and font, also called Interstate. Like my other watercolours and text pieces on the North Montana Plains, a real place which I never visited, ‘Interstate’ is about regret, imagination and hope. The sign to a place I never saw makes it a place I can always imagine. (Peter Liversidge)

Simon Periton: The Hanging Debtor 2013 Spray paint on powder-coated steel

The Hanging Debtor is typical of Simon Periton’s decorative ‘cover’ for more serious issues such as politics, popular culture and history. The figure, hanging upside-down, is based on a German illustration from 1438, in which bags of coins in the cloak appear to defy gravity.
