Dev Harlan: Infinity Landing and Tomorrow’s Stars
Young Guns 7 winner Dev Harlan (Devan Simunovich) has his work up in two Brooklyn venues this week.
INFINITY LANDING is a site specific installation consisting of new works in sculpture, projection and light manipulation. The exhibition is the first solo show by artist Dev Harlan and is intended to be viewed in a “leisurely” fashion, whilst presenting optically challenging work at a larger than life scale.
The centerpiece, “TRIBAR I”, is derived from the well known Penrose triangle illusion, and is realized as a 3D dimensional illuminated sculpture. Like planets, the sculptures and viewer must come into alignment, at which point ecstatic infinite recursion takes hold. The pyramidal piece “Rupture”, is geometrically complimentary, and appears as though forever caught in a state of expansion, while luminous color wells up from it’s insides.
Show will be on view from March 5th-17th, with an opening reception and party Saturday March 5th. Party hours 6-11pm. Fun friendly Willyburg style, and BYOB optional!
ROUGE 58 555 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn, NY
