Greene Contemporary is pleased to present new photographs and video by collaborative artists Robyn Voshardt and Sven Humphrey in Double Bind / Double Blind from Thursday, April 23 through Sunday, May 24, 2009. An opening reception on Wednesday, April 22 from 6 to 9 p.m. will preview the exhibition. This is Voshardt/Humphrey’s first solo exhibition in New York. Voshardt/Humphrey explore states of being and patterns of thinking – from anxiety and restlessness to motivation and control – on personal, social, and institutional levels. Their wide-ranging inquiry contrasts claustrophobic interiors with outdoor spaces, analog and digital sources, color with black and white, and small to large scale. Though much of their imagery seems uninhabited, appearing like a mise-en-scène minus characters, on closer inspection one finds evidence of human tampering, management and intervention even in views that appear to be straightforward landscapes. Voshardt/Humphrey remain fundamentally concerned with cognitive processes, and the dilemma of holding two opposing viewpoints in one’s mind simultaneously.
