THU, December 10, 2009, 6-8 pm (through January 23) DAVID NOLAN GALLERY 527 West 29th Street, Ground Floor
"Incorrigible Believers", an installation by Romanian artist Ciprian Muresan is featured in the project room at David Nolan Gallery as part of the exhibition "Morphological Mutiny," gathering recent paintings and works on paper by three New York artists: Steve DiBenedetto, Alexander Ross and James Siena.
Ciprian Muresan recontextualizes and deconstructs the works of well known literary and art historical figures. Working conceptually in all media, Muresan has appropriated works by Yves Klein, Eugène Ionesco, and Andrei Tarkovsky. For the gallery's project room, Muresan will present a new sculptural installation entitled Incorrigible Believers, consisting of miniature wooden church pews made for children, leading up to the display of Muresan's written ending to Franz Kafka's unfinished 1926 novel, "The Castle." Muresan reinterprets the meanings of the original text, and brings up questions regarding ideology and the formation of collective and individual identity.
