Sam Lewitt, Lucy Raven at Pilar Corrias

Sam Lewitt

Clean the place out. Strip the lights. Burn the light to turn up the heat. Set the lights to "Siren." Representations of our current boring dystopia, both artists reaffirming the callous concrete conditions of the world, its artificialness and austerity, a coldness we begin to find somehow pleasing, enjoying our pleasure denied by assertions of power, warmth in the current that designates our capitalist life, comfort in our mastery by others as we acclimate and absorb the cold conditions of our world, artists thinking in the master's voice.
