Andrew Kreps Gallery is pleased to announce a special project with Hadi Fallahpisheh at the gallery's 22 Cortlandt Alley location. In 2016, Fallahpisheh was living in rural upstate New York in an area that had heavily supported Donald Trump's election. Unable to renew his Visa, and faced with the prospect of moving back to his native Iran, he spent the last of his savings buying two dozen bottles of "Trump" label wine. After drinking the contents, Fallahpisheh turned the empty vessels into Molotov cocktails, filled with gasoline, and still bearing the "Trump" label, before burying these on his property. This past spring, when working on a series of photographic works with the recurring imagery of alcohol and consumption, Fallahpisheh remembered these buried objects and drove upstate to retrieve them. All were found intact, though their contents had since evaporated. These empty vessels in turn form the basis of the exhibition at the gallery, presented alongside new sculptural and photographic works, scheduled to open before the 2020 presidential election.
Exhibition Date: October 23, 2020 - November 7, 2020
Masks are required to visit the gallery. Social distancing guidelines are enforced.
