Friedman Benda Presents Titus Kaphar's The Vesper Project
Friedman Benda presents Titus Kaphar's The Vesper Project. The exhibition, which opens February 28 at the Chelsea gallery, is a sculptural maze. Kaphar seamlessly weaves his own work throughout (and on) the walls of a 19th century American home. Consisting of three reconstructed rooms, paintings, scultpures, and furniture including a neglected wardrobe, a vintage typwriter, and gilt frames strewn throughout, The Vesper Project is a confusing installation that contributes to a disrupted mental state. Kaphar documents the history of the Vesper family wtih old photographs and cultural identity triggers that lead the viewer into a fractured experience—as fractured as the 1870s house.
Friedman Benda is located at 515 West 26th Street. The Vesper Project will be on view from February 28–April 6, 2013.Click images to view at full-size.
