"I think I'm in hell, and therefore I am."
envoy enterprises is pleased to present BEAUTY and HELL, a two-part exhibition by the art duo SUPERM. BEAUTY will be on view at the gallery’s 131 Chrystie Street location followed by HELL which will be on view at the gallery’s 87 Rivington space.
Inspired by the poetry of Arthur Rimbaud and the art of Hans Bellmer and Pierre Molinier, this dual exhibition combines a new series of collages entitled SKINGRAPHS, which represent BEAUTY, with the latest SUPERM video featuring Francois Sagat with contributions by Josh Lee, Nick Theobald, Gio Black Peter and Erica Keck, which represent HELL.
SUPERM is a collaborative art project by Slava Mogutin & Brian Kenny. Their work has been exhibited at Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam, The Haifa Museum of Art in Israel, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León (MUSAC) in Spain, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and, most recently, at Station Museum of Contemporary Art in Houston. This show marks 8 years of fruitful collaboration between the two artists.
