Whitehot Suggests: The sequential musings of {647912}


Whitehot Suggests:  


170 Suffolk Street from March 8th to March 21st
11am -7pm on each day  

This March in NYC is the time for a yet unseen kind of exhibition. Presented by the Parisian Gallery L’Inlassable, curated by the artist Edgar Sarin, who has been noted for his pursuit of new art exhibition customs in gallery spaces, {647912} will array thirteen artists over thirteen days. A step forward is made in the way space and works of art organically interact.

The gallery space will be divided in two parts – two walls –, referred to as The Crowd and The Mirror. The Crowd displays a simple geometric composition of the thirteen pieces. Each day, one artwork will be culled from The Crowd and dramatically evinced on the opposite wall: The Mirror. Therefore, throughout the exhibition, all the works will, in turn, be emphasized individually on The Mirror. 

If you mull over the recondite series of bracketed digits {647912}, do remember it is a ciphered code that can be unravelled by clues provided in the number 3 issue of The Antechamber of the Radiant Substance – the contemporary periodical directed by Edgar Sarin. Once deciphered, {647912} unveils the location of the exhibition’s relic, hidden somewhere in New York City for this event.

Carefully interlocked, {647912} will display works by Marcella Barcelo, Stephen Dean, Anne Deleporte, David Dixon, Sol LeWitt, René Magritte, Simon Martin, Rose Morant, Gaspard Maîtrepierre, Vik Muniz, Edgar Sarin, Reinhard Voss and Jeannie Weissglass. WM
