> DESCRIPTION

GALLERY CLOSED DECEMBER 22-25

The Ellipsis Space at Triple Base Gallery is pleased to present La Folie, an exhibition of collaborative work by artists Jason Benson and Joel Dean. Both formally trained in painting, Benson and Dean have experimented with expanding their practice in working collaboratively to create paintings, sculptures, and site-specific gallery installations. 

For the exhibition, La Folie, a French phrase meaning "The Madness", Benson and Dean's practice as painters acts as a point of departure in the creation of the installation. The artists have created a series of sculptures by aproporiating the form of a bench as a device through which to experience an exhibition. Simultaneously constructed on the floor and deconstructed on the walls, they are modes of viewing and experiencing as twofold. These sculptures are objects participating in, but disassociated from their original function.  

La Folie is a rendezvous: a mannered gathering place structured to generate relationships amongst the viewer, the object, and the space.
