Simon Denny (NZ)
7 Unreachable Elevators
Period: March 5 – April 9, 2011
Curated by Torben Ribe as part of No Certain Terms
Simon Denny will show a new project called 7 Unreachable Elevators in IMO’s intimate exhibition space Phonebox. The work consists of a plaque, some tape, some fixing devices and a few small photographs. The artist will be present for the opening.
Simon Denny’s exhibition is the second in a series of alternative solo shows to be presented in Phonebox in 2011. The series is titled ”No Certain Terms” and is curated by IMO artist Torben Ribe. ”No Certain Terms” focuses on artists with complex and not easily classifiable art practices. The peculiar space of the phone booth and its intimate qualities will provide the impetus for these different and varied presentations of artists, for whom the exhibition is often a medium in itself.
Simon Denny (1982 Auckland) has previously had solo exhibitions at Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis, Halle Für Kunst, Lüneburg, Galerie Daniel Buchholz, Cologne, and Luettgenmeijer, Berlin.
