Gregg Bordowitz: Talk is the object

@ iceberg projects

7714 N Sheridan Rd, Chicago, IL 60626

Opening Saturday, May 21st, from 6PM - 9PM

On view through Saturday, June 25th

For this exhibition, Bordowitz will curate a selection of artworks from Dan Berger’s collection to be shown in the Iceberg Gallery. During the opening, the artist will deliver a gallery talk contemplating the porous boundary between private and public spaces. At issue is the ideal of creative freedom.

Borodowitz wrote: “Parts of the body are objects. That sentence almost cost me a toe. I was descending a staircase, feeling my way down the carpet in sock feet. My leg slipped and a crucial memory was stirred. Quick to dismiss the severity of the fall, I tried to ignore the situation even though the damage was evident. A bloodstain appeared through the wool… There is injury and there is art. These two facts merely coincide. Ultimately, composition does not heal. It does not mend. We pretend that there are meaningful connections. Still, things move without us.”
