DUPLEX is pleased to present our second pop-up show, “Flesh”, a group exhibition featuring artists whose work plays with the transformation of the corporeal form within our contemporary age. Organized alongside Marvel Vision, pieces by Jeffrey Bennett Allen, Andie Dinkin, Maggie Hazen, Alexandra Metcalf + Victoria Hanyes, Nicholas Nazmi, Ellie Tomlinson, William Udell, and Emily Wissemann expose, conceal, abstract, and disfigure the human body. Through video, performance, sculpture, and painting these pieces work in tandem to transform flesh, the consequences of such efforts resulting more in mutilation than metamorphosis. “Flesh” ultimately represents the spirit of Halloween, honoring the power of disguise and self-exploration while reminding us of our own material stagnation.
