Kevin Murphy: Entropy Now

AMS Gallery Oct 20-24, 11:00-5:00 Daily
Opening Reception: Monday Oct 20, 6:00-8:00pm

Entropy Now features three new sculptural installation works by Kevin Murphy. Mapping ideas of entropy onto the contemporary moment, the exhibition investigates the relationships between accumulation, stasis, and collapse within a series of contrived microcosms. Employing the vocabulary of Robert Smithson’s Site/Nonsite works in an explicitly artificial way, the whimsical but troubling pieces begin to blur the line between real and imagined times and/or places. Crisis and anxiety play out through the innocent structures of the sandbox, wading pool, and crystal garden, as they become imperfect models for larger concerns.
