Eric Wesley, 2 New Works, Installation view, Bortolami Gallery, New York, NY 2012

Bortolami gallery is pleased to present Eric Wesley’s third solo show at the gallery. The first work, “The Improbability of Intentionally Creating Shock”, is comprised of four individually presented elements constituting an elaborate machine. The artist confronts issues of success and failure, and initiates a conversation about the nature of “shock” by literally attempting to “shock” the audience. The primal intent of the work involves one person, the artist, touching another, the viewer: an electrical and biological exchange of energy.
