DUPLEX is pleased to present our first pop-up show, “Greener Pastures”: a multi-media group exhibition by emerging young artists whose work creates a vision of paradise, over Chelsea. Duplex provides opportunities for young artists to showcase new work in carefully curated exhibitions that reflect their environment. Works by Xavier Donnelly, Roxy Gordon, Simiran Johnston, Benjamin Langford, Jenny Sonenberg, and Emily Wissemann play with ideas of re-appropriation and a re-imagining of our contemporary landscape. From newly interpreted industrial objects and magazines to the manipulation of recycled representations of utopia, these works form a sanctuary for our individual and collective artistic, professional, and quotidian fantasies. “Greener Pastures” offers an alternate reality, where the line between the artificial and the mystical is blurred and where visions of an imagined past and future are physicalized.
