Saville Row’s Hauser & Wirth gallery is currently playing host to a new exhibition of work by Los Angeles-based artist Sterling Ruby. Entitled EXHM, the artist’s abbreviation for ‘exhumation’, the exhibition presents an installation of new ceramics, collages, fabric and urethane sculptures.
These collective works continue Ruby’s channeling of the conflicts between individual impulses and mechanisms of social control, American domination and decline, an engagement with irrationality and dysfunctional psychology, and its end result in upheaval. In EXHM, the works are acts of autobiographical, art historical and social archaeology. Take a look at the exhibition in the gallery above. EXHM runs 22 March – 4 May 2013
