Stephen Prina

Homo Faber and Exquisite Corpse at Friedrich Petze
Friedrich Petzel Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new work by Stephen Prina. The exhibition will be comprised of three diptychs from the ongoing series Exquisite Corpse, begun January 1, 1988, and six examples from Homo Faber, the premiere of a suite of recto/verso works on paper and wood. These two projects pivot on the double in a way that is reminiscent of the split infinitive—an ungrammatical proposition. Both projects renegotiate allusion, body, continuity, diptych, discontinuity, fashion, figure, frame, genre, geometry, gesture, history, hybrid, index, landscape, making, monochrome, the new, oeuvre, palette, self-portraiture, and still life—among other characteristics and operations—according to disparate logics.
