JULY 7th - August 4th
LEtting yourself go
SELECTIONS FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTION
GRAPHITE ON PAPER
This July, we are pleased to present Philip Brou's first solo exhibition at the Corey Daniels Gallery. Letting Yourself Go is a new multimedia project investigating selfhood and the human condition. Featuring found objects, commissioned drawings from forensic artists, and a stunning series of meticulously rendered paintings and drawings, this installation interrogates fixed notions of the self. The project began with research into the famous story of Polyphemus, the cyclops from Homer's Odyssey who holds Odysseus and his men captive in his cave, and centers around the presence of the Nobody as a persona used to escape captivity and confront the ego.
We will also be exhibiting a selection of Sally Mann photographs from a private collection, ranging from her intimate family portraits to her Southern landscapes. Mann is one of the more accomplished and yet controversial artists working today.
In addition, we will be showing a carefully curated selection of James Marshall's process-driven sculptures and large-scale drawings. Marshall's focused exploration of graphite on paper has evolved into a series of abstract works that imbue the common paper bag with a nuanced, complex and compelling visual identity.
