Apparatus

With »Apparatus«, American artist Roxy Paine introduces a new chapter in his work, a series of large scale dioramas. Inspired by spaces and environments designed to be activated via human interaction, a fast-food restaurant and a control room, the dioramas present spaces and objects which are hand carved from birch and maple wood and formed from steel, encased and frozen in time, void of human presence, making their inherent function obsolete. Apparatus was Paine’s first solo exhibition in Chicago at Kavi Gupta Gallery.
