JAKOB BOESKOV : WEEKEND FUTUROLOGY at MULHERIN + POLLARD (NYC)


OPENING WEDNESDAY SEPT. 5, 2012 (6-8*)
JAKOB BOESKOV - WEEKEND FUTUROLOGY
MULHERIN + POLLARD
187 CHRYSTIE STREET
NY, NY 10002

Sept. 5 - Oct. 7, 2012
Opening Wednesday September 5, 6-8PM

Mulherin + Pollard is pleased to announce Weekend Futurology by Danish-Icelandic artist Jakob Boeskov. Recent drawings and videos reveal a futuristic, playfully paranoid world drawn from Boeskov's oeuvre: technology, politics and science fiction.Playing both mischief maker and professor, Boeskov shifts between campy sci-fi pastiche and critical examination. Using a futuristic iconograpy, drawn from new technology and popular science fiction, He seeks to expose a new "technological sub-consciousness" where violence and mind-control dwell. Diagrams, drones, and robots in search of love populate drawings discussing topics ranging from big data to internet dating.Jakob Boeskov (b. 1973).

He has exhibited work at Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and Frankfurter Kunstverein in Germany and was recently the subject of a large retrospective at the Danish National Gallery.  

an upcoming project worth noting,  "T7" (Pork Salad Press 2012) , is a collection of Boeskov's drawings which accompany a record by Timothy DeWit (Gang Gang Dance) and Matthew Morandi (Stagg). The book/record project will have a reception at The New Museum on Sept. 26th, 2012
