> DESCRIPTION

Ico Gallery is honored to announce “A Foot In The Grave,” a collective exhibition running through the month of November, which examines the fragility of life and death.  The artists in this exhibition have forgone the question of when life begins and have taken on their social duty to examine when life ends, and what it means to be alive.  Through multiple mediums and artistic styles, they examine their own lives to see what it is to be alive, and what it means to society in today’s world.

Through new forms, techniques and mediums, a new type of artist was created, one who conceptualized and produced works from ideas, not from traditional means of creation.  A new breed of artistic thinker has emerged in the past few years, and I have chosen works by artists from around the globe in order to examine how fragile the balance of life and death actually is.  With terrorism, horrific natural disasters and new diseases taking lives prematurely, we begin to ponder what it actually means to be alive.  Death has been depicted through the entire history of art, and will do so until the last human expires.
