This show is a Jeanne Claude Venn Diagram of spectacle and stilted communication.
This coming Friday, April 15th, Joe Mault’s solo show, 850K will open at Kirk’s Apartment. The work in this show explores language, communication, the cleanly and the corrosive. Using strong materials from fluorescent bulbs to bleach and plastic Joe’s work confounds concrete definition of purpose and creation while echoing familiar objects in form. In this show Joe plays with forms that vary from the apartment fixture to the minimalist object and even language itself. Please join us this Friday, April 15 (7-10pm) for the opening of 850K: Joe Mault at Kirk’s Apartment.
