Langer Over Dickie is proud to present a series of works by artists Elliot Doughtie and Shir Ende in Modules and Other Nonsense. Utilizing silk screen schematics and a contractor’s magic wand, Doughtie and Ende leverage layering and modulation, illustrating transitional architectures of interior built spaces and constructed identities.
Constructed environments and non-vernacular architecture serve as default way-finding scenarios, where persons corral through predetermined transitional territories. While adherence is not the twin of conformity, dominant culture prevails in human-designed public spaces, as it does in the structures behind their walls. Modules and Other Nonsense illuminates these tenuous relationships without basely appealing to the target of their subtle restraints: the autonomy of human movement and the desires expressed therein.
The works in the exhibition perform a surrogacy for bodies traversing transitional spaces. Doughtie and Ende reassert a choreography with an embedded means of fluidity, via layered processes of screen printing and installation interventions. Here, the artists engender unique encounters and orientations that outstrip fixed perimeters and presumed functionalities.
