In distinction from the material world

Location: 88 Essex Street NY, NY 10002 (inside Essex Street Market)

Cuchifritos Gallery and Residency Unlimited are pleased to present their ninth annual collaboration, In distinction from the material world, featuring new work from artists Sebastian Burger, Arghavan Khosravi, Zita Schüpferling, Serge Serum, and Shihori Yamamoto.

Though distinct in their practices, each artist’s work negotiates the complex boundaries between an interior reality and the tangible world. Rendering the surreal, disembodied, and imperceptible, the work on view transforms fiction into a direct experience of the present.

Sebastian Burger explores the integrity of the human body, its physicalness and the construction of identity through materiality and surfaces in his painting practice. Often described as sediments of meaning derived from a multitude of references, Burger’s work looks back at its observers drawing them in with delicate textures and gradients, while creating distance through the harshness of shapes, forms, and colors.
