Opening this Saturday nite, January 10th is the debut of tag team street art duo & vandal squad most wanted list members PORK & SPAM’s “Monsterheaven” exhibition at Supertouch’s official NYC enclave FUSE GALLERY. Peep the details, and don’t be late:
“Contradicting the dark cavernous environment in which Fuse Gallery sits, Monsterheaven, a site-specific installation, serves as a ‘heavenly niche.’ Using satire to explore the tension between beauty and horror, a maze of plywood clouds hangs from the ceiling with seemingly evil yet playful creatures interspersed. Creating a sensation of looking down from the heavens, many small stencil and collage works hang below eye level on the wall while other three dimensional works and video scatter the floor. A harp plays in the corner while an ambient mix of divine chanting and growls is overheard throughout. PORK and SPAM rob horror of its power through humor, finding the sublime median between darkness and levity, blending the beautiful and the banal in this dark depiction of life's comedy.” HAVE A LOOK:
