SculptureCenter is pleased to present Addict-Love, an exhibition of new work by Tom Burr. In Addict-Love, Tom Burr creates a constellation of abstract tableaux reflecting on elements of modernity: its histories, its personalities, its frailties, and its styles. Burr ruminates on specific figures, vague moments, and the heady mise-en-scènes that both gave rise to and were shaped by modernism’s powerful ideologies. Burr uses specific forms of the theater – platforms/stages, railings, curtains, lighting, mirrors, and personal articles that function allegorically. These sculptural props suggest a memory of modernism and a history of sculpture as a series of scripted gestures to be performed and endlessly repeated.
