For Immediate Release:  January 4, 2012, New York, NY // Ed. Varie is pleased to announce GOOD AS NEW, the work of artists Aurélien Arbet, Jérémie Egry, David Brandon Geeting, Nicholas Gottlund, Bruno Zhu and David Zilber.

Opening Reception January 19, 6–9 pm

GOOD AS NEW is an exercise in short-term solutions. The artists in this exhibition are aligned by their common interest in the “makeshift.” Through photography and installation work, Aurélien Arbet, Jérémie Egry, David Brandon Geeting, Nicholas Gottlund, Bruno Zhu, and David Zilber convey ideas that “mean” well, but do not necessarily “do” well. On principle, the work in this show was created by thinking with the gut and not with the brain. It is an accurate representation of inaccuracy, a “larger than life” depiction of “smaller than life,” a demonstration of the quick fix, a celebration of the makeshift.

Brought together by David Geeting, who found an interview where David Zilber expressed interest in participating in a “dream show” with the above-mentioned artists, initiated a group email that linked all of the participants together, the exhibition is rooted in a roundabout manner from the start.

GOOD AS NEW opens to the public on January 19, 2012 6-9 pm and will be on view at Ed. Varie through February 12, 2012. Please contact the gallery for additional information, info@edvarie.com.
