G. Bridle: Pokazukha, the Retreat

7 September–10 November 2013

‘Pokazukha’ is Russian slang, meaning ‘for show’ or ‘to show off’. G. Bridle works with the Retreat, his evolving, expanding collection of readymades and assisted readymades. Rather than offer a coherent narrative, exhibits in his current show are cues, elements in a diagram, or clues in a larger scenario where the conditions of viewing are as important as the things themselves. What is shown is intrinsically connected with how it’s shown and what remains undisclosed.
