David Zwirner is pleased to present its first exhibition with Jordan Wolfson, on view at 533 West 19th Street in New York. Wolfson, who joined the gallery in 2013, will debut an animatronic sculpture, a major development in the artist's practice. Also on view will be new wall-mounted sculptures and the video Raspberry Poser (2012), shown in New York for the first time.
Over the past decade, Wolfson has become known for his thought-provoking works in a wide range of media, including video, sculpture, installation, photography, and performance. He pulls intuitively from the world of advertising, the Internet, and the technology industries to produce ambitious and enigmatic narratives. However, instead of simply appropriating found material, the artist creates his own unique content, which frequently revolves around a series of invented, animated characters.
