Oscar Tuazon‘s solo show General Contractor is on at Brussels’ dépendance, opening April 20 and running to May 25.
The LA-based artist uses construction sites, materials and processes to inhabit space, be it by flattening a small house, by coming upon moments construction or by building beams in to a space. At London’s Modern Art, Tuazon’s beam structures were inhabited by holes and poetry by Ariana Reines.
There is no information to accompany the coming show at the Brussels space, but we are teased with an image of (presumably) the same house Tuazon pulled down in a recent exhibition at Paradise Garage which aqnb reviewed last year. The windows and door are closed, leaving us to imagine what inhabits and what will inhabit a show whose title references the position of someone able to provide permission to perform labour and change a space entirely.
General Contractor coincides with the Art Brussels weekend coming up.
See the dépendance exhibition page for (limited) details.**
