Event description

Description

We Are the Asteroid pairs Liz Ensz and David Moré in their first exhibition together after more than 15 years in conversation about discarded objects, decay, value, hidden beauty, freedom,
hope, and resilience. This exhibition presents multiple options for the future of the Earth and Civilization by uncovering utopian and dystopian elements legible within mundane objects and materials.

This exploration of the contemporary American landscape has been fueled by a concern for material value and economies, availability of resources, and the identification of our most
abundant and untapped resource, our own waste. Our material footprint will outlive the emblems designed to signify our political and moral ideals, and stand as our lasting cultural monument.

This collection of transformative material gestures present a comparative study of the mass-cultural investment in disposability and the human desire to imagine permanence through emblems, monuments, and commemoration. While disparate intentions inform these impulses – one to remember, and the other to quickly forget – each will materially describe our society to future generations. We hold up a mirror of trash to see ourselves clearly.

Works for this exhibition will include digital environments, inventively processed materials, printed textiles, cast metal sculpture, proposals, and improvised installations with “the best local trash.”


Current Space is an artist-run gallery, studio, and a headquarters for cultural production, nourishing an ongoing dialogue between artists, activists, performers, designers, curators, and thinkers. Operating since November 2004, we are committed to showcasing, developing, and broadening the reach of artists locally and internationally.
