Sean Raspet is presenting solo exhibition Untitled (Registration/PIN: G0009296/78GY76DM; G0009297/99ER43TB; G0009298/39ZL54SJ) at New Galerie New York, opening April 19 and running to May 9.
The artist, also represented by Berlin’s Société, announces the show with a description of a substance that sounds a lot like SmartWater (a coded anti-theft liquid that can be read under UV light) covering the gallery space.
All that draws some interesting connections between law enforcement and the “forensic preoccupation with the logistics of surfaces and contact being isomorphic to certain modes of traditional aesthetic contemplation”.
