The dates of the exhibition are 14 September – 29 October 2011. Winokur, who is known for his deadpan studies of objects, humans, and dogs, has turned his attention to peculiar hardware shapes. Their usefulness of a very specific yet unknown nature, these items manifest a cerebral gravity. Although free of irony, a playfulness is evinced as well. There appears to be a geometric significance to certain shapes, though what that might be is also elusive. They are seductive without being sentimental.
Each Cibachrome print bursts with hyper-saturated color. While the objects chosen are of an elementary nature, their purpose is unknown. Winokur’s signature style, of isolating objects against vibrant colors, elevates these humble items to celebrity status.
