GALLERY CLOSED DECEMBER 22-25

The E llipsis 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\, B enson and Dean have experimented with expanding their practice in working c ollaboratively to create paintings\, sculptures\, and site-specific gallery installations. 

For the exhibition\, La Folie\, a French phrase meaning "The Madness"\, B enson and Dean's practice as painters acts as a point of departure in the c reation of the installation. The artists have created a series of sculpture s by aproporiating the form of a bench as a device through which to experie nce an exhibition. Simultaneously constructed on the floor and deconstructe d on the walls\, they are modes of viewing and experiencing as twofold. The se sculptures are objects participating in\, but disassociated from their o riginal function.  

La F olie is a rendezvous: a mannered gathering place structured to generate rel ationships amongst the viewer\, the object\, and the space.
