For Here or To Stay OPENS TONIGHT 6-9pm!!!

Ed. Varie is pleased to present For Here or To Stay, a two-person exhibition with works by J.S. Mildenberg and Marco Scozzaro. Opening reception Thursday May 15 from 6-9pm.

J.S. Mildenberg and Marco Scozzaro present separate bodies of work that explore the human paradigm as perceived through a collective consciousness. Both works reflect the imprints we leave behind in our surroundings and with others whether it be intentional or not. 

With found objects as raw materials, Mildenberg’s installation, Kyvugoeline Roaehrgimpmli, explores the deconstruction and reconstruction of identity as we try to harness others perceptions of ourselves. As the installation and objects are compiled, they become a narrative of their own separate of the individual, bringing together the discarded remnants that we leave in our wake from a fractured identity. J.S. Mildenberg is a Brooklyn based artist currently pursuing an MFA in Sculpture from Yale University (2015). He has received a BFA from Massachusetts College of Arts and has been exhibited in San Francisco, Boston and New York.

Scozzaro’s photographs are selections from his ongoing body of work titled Maggio, translating in Italian to the month of May. His work brings an intentional and calculated sensitivity to the people and environments he photographs while capturing the understated complexity of the relationship between the two. Marco Scozzaro, born and raised in Italy, currently lives in New York. He was a recipient of a presidential scholarship at the Global Residency Program at the School of Visual Arts, and holds an MA in Psychology from the University of Parma. His work has been exhibited in France, Italy, Netherlands, Macedonia and the United States.

For Here or To Stay will be both artists’ first exhibition with Ed. Varie and will be on view from May 15th through June 8th. For additional any additional information, please contact the gallery, info@edvarie.com.

Excerpt from text by Dan Rule:

"…These are reflections on our hilarious and slightly disturbing state of affairs as much as they are gags. Payne’s works capture and wrangle the vaguely biographical images, texts and details we not only release, but also actively flaunt, in the increasingly pervasive public domain."

NICK SETHI Opens Friday March 21 6-9pm

Ed. Varie is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Nick Sethi with Opening Reception Friday, March 21, 2014 from 6-9pm.

Orbiting the body of work presented in a self published zine, FOR YOUR EYES ONLY Vol 1., Nick Sethi continues to explore and expand the social investigation of intimate self-portraits, or as the Oxford dictionaries made the official in 2013, the selfie.

From a massive and ongoing collection of found photographs from the internet, Sethi dives deep into the phenomenon of the selfie as a form of self expression operating within the confines of public approval. The selfie has presented itself as a cyclical form of self-expression both projecting and reflecting simultaneously, leaving us to wonder which comes first. The availability and anonymity of these images transforms this newborn narcissistic medium into a free radical of sorts, an unpaired extension of ourselves. The images keep the viewer at arms length both metaphorically and physically, while exposing the process through a meticulously executed partial identity.

On his own journey of self-discovery and expression, Sethi’s social media feeds teem with selfies. On a recent introduction to the process of UV tanning, Sethi became interested in ‘what else could be out there’. Digging deep into the trenches of internet images, Sethi collected and dissected hundreds of self-portraits, all hand held, taken on a camera phone, circulating for free on the internet, and in tanning salons. Transcending the C-print, the color photographic images are printed on aluminum and mounted to the walls unframed, and will be on view in the dimly light gallery space; an ode to their place of creation and discovery.

Sethi is an American photographer of Indian descent who lives and works in Brooklyn. Sethi has a B.A. in communications from NYU. He has worked with notable photographers such as Chadwick Tyler and Terry Richardson. He has several published books, the most recent with Dashwood, titled Pul Ke Niche.

Honoring the birthplace of the work in this solo show, limited copies of FOR YOUR EYES ONLY Vol 1 will be available on opening night.  Nick Sethi’s work will be on view at Ed. Varie from Friday March 21 through April 6, 2014. For further information please contact the gallery director at info@edvarie.com.
