The show situates paintings and sculptural works in a loaded site for artist and project space founder Hinge: darkZone is located in the basement crawl space of his New Jersey family home. Along the walls Hinge’s colourful figurative paintings bring to mind schlocky trash films and pulp pop culture, while the cellar is populated with the distressed figurine sculptures of Sargent, along with Sullivan’s kitsch ceiling fan installation. The works in kissed by profane grace play to the space’s feeling as a site for childhood retreat into skewed imagination.**
