The exhibition — which also comes recommended as part of this week’s Frieze 2016 offsite + fringe events — presents new paintings, sculptural and video works by the New York-based artist that “transmit humour and pathos in equal parts”. The materials shift and respond to ideas and their environment, with “the novelty of new materials” providing greater freedom for Ferlito.
The thematic undertones of the artist’s work — who also took part in Guccivuitton (since renamed Versace Versace Versace)’s The Christmas Show in Miami last year — are diaristic in form but not insular enough to close the work off from the viewer. There is always plenty of space for the onlooker to have freedom to interpret the work as they please.
