< /strong>Mark Moore Gallery is pleased to announce the first Los Angeles sol o exhibition for contemporary artist\, Chad Person.

\n< p>In his newest body of work\, Person utilizes his trademark fascination wi th the confluence of economy and societal power structures through innovati ve installation\, sculpture and performance. "Surviving the End of Your Wor ld" will feature several collages from the artist's "TaxCut" series\, and t he debut of "Thirst" – a fifteen-foot inflatable sculpture depicting the Mo bil Oil Pegasus lying in a glossy black acrylic pool of its own crude. Pers on's use of iconographic signifiers related to American capitalism and cons umerism are juxtaposed with notions of sheer Darwinist survival featured in his "RECESS" project\, which will be featured in the gallery's Project Roo m. In addition to a live video feed of the artist's performance in his self -made "apocalypse bunker" in Albuquerque\, New Mexico\, "RECESS" includes f unctioning installation works to spotlight cultural intervention\, critique of corporate enterprise and the myth of self-reliance in the face of essen tial conservation.
