MARK VERABIOFF > BREAKDOWN

MAY 18, 9PM - 12AM , 2013

Mark Verabioff's art explores his circuitous relationship between language, aesthetics and content, moving in and out of logic, absurdity, provocation and seduction. The work sutures cultural politics with the suspicious hypnosis of memory culled from a variety of sources including television, film and American popular culture. Verabioff's mutations of his intellectual gestures from his subversive past has created a captivating body of work anchored with radical formalism and the artist's own signature style. His art manifests itself in a variety of forms that challenge and seduce the viewer. Utilizing appropriation, installation, sculpture, page tears, performative-residue, performance and video, his work embodies many visual cultural insurgents that have occupied the making of art and art historical lexicon since the mid 1980s.
