128 color pages, hardcover.
Wasserman Projects presented After Industry, an exhibition of new and recent work by Italian sculptor Willy Verginer, Norwegian painter Christer Karlstad, and Michigan-based photographer Jason DeMarte. The exhibition marks the first time that Verginer and Karlstad’s work will be explored in depth in the U.S, and the first time their work will be exhibited together and with that of DeMarte. While vastly different in style, media, and technique, these artists’ works offer a subtle but unmistakable commentary on humanity’s disregard for and attempts to control the natural world. Their installations, paintings, and photographs convey the psychological and physical state of a world engrossed in consumption, and as a result at the cusp or just beyond collapse. After Industry immersed audiences in an aesthetically rich experience, while also providing a platform to engage with important underlying themes, including consumerism, human impact on the environment, and the effects of mass production. After Industry also featured work by Verginer’s son, Christian Verginer, including several wall reliefs, made of wood and depicting scenes of forests.
