Examining society’s brutally intoxicating consumerism and insatiable desire for material goods, Grokhovsky examines the broken dreams and isolation that these objects sustain. Echoing rampant consumerism itself, and the posession of myriad discarded objects, Theater of the Mundane deconstructs and devours the artist’s own past artworks and highlights the eternal human longing for connection. Hosted by chashama at the cavernous 273 Bleecker street space, Theater of the Mundane offers an immersive experience traversing sculpture, performance and new media.
The exhibit is on view from Sept 14th-30th, Tue-Sun from 12-6pm with a closing reception: Sunday 30th September 2018, 6-9 pm and is free and open to the public.
