From Jun 11 through Aug 2011.
Primary Flight presents “An Official State”, the monumental sculptures of Miami-based artist Andrew Nigon. As if caught in a moment of euphoric overdose, his work explodes with bright colors, discarded luxury items, and objects bent on fulfilling a life cycle they will never experience.
“My work reflects the bizarre nature of our existence, in which we have an insatiable drive to improve while simultaneously living within bodies that are in constant decay”, said Nigon. “The result being seductive and tortured characters that exist halfway between somewhere and nowhere.”
An Official State is curated by Books IIII Bischof, Typoe and Chris Oh. Free and open to the public, this exhibition will be on view through the summer at the Atrium Building.
Primary Flight is a collaborative curatorial organization dedicated to the production of site-specific, street level and indoor, murals and installations. Since its inception in 2007, Primary Flight has brought together more than 150 of the world’s most influential artists to install their bodies of work live in the streets of Wynwood, the Design District and greater Miami-Dade. Launching Primary Projects in December 2010, Primary Flight uses its 4,000-square-foot space as an art lab, giving professional established and emerging artists the opportunity to redefine the context in which their work is experienced.
