André Filipek presented solo exhibition el que nace pa maceta no sale del corredor… at Atlanta’s Wreath which opened May 6 and ran to May 21.
The New York-based artist presented a series of sculpture and wall-based works in mixed media that included a range of materials from steel, latex, resin and plastic to terrad cotta, bread and cinnamon to name a few.
The press release includes a colloquial letter written about his cousin who gave up on chasing his dream of working in aerospace engineering to work with the country’s largest bus manufacturer: “I think a lot about what it means to compromise, and if that’s even really such a bad thing.”**
