Sascha Braunig at P.S.1 & Foxy Production

(Foxy ProductionP.S.1)

Plasticity. A smoothness we associate with Surrealism, Tanguy, Dali or whoever: liquidity representing conscious malleability, the subconscious, appearing like those renderings covering everything in digital plastic. Braunig's, while decidedly not digital, contain all the smoothing, goo and rubber and wireframes come to stand in for our bodies. You used to have to be a serial killer to sew a flesh suit, now it seems one represents you always, peel yourself, reveal your wireframe undergirding you. Braunig the painter of this sweat.
