10 June 2006 - 22 June 2006Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present its first exhibition of new art works by American artist Robert Beck. Robert Beck creates encounters between objects and viewers. His work is poetic, engaging, visceral, and sometimes violent. In his exhibition at Stephen Friedman Gallery, Beck deploys a diverse range of media including offset printing blankets, a plaster-cast brick-and-mortar wall sculpture, a cast-aluminium exhibition display apparatus that presents an array of disparate artefacts, and drawings that incorporate forensic latent fingerprint powder. Throughout, personal and cultural narratives are collapsed.
