Harmonizing with Exhaustion

Brian Khek @ Levy Delval, Jun 4 – Jul 4

3 June 2015

Brian Khek opens up a new solo show called Harmonizing with Exhaustion at Brussels’s Levy Delval, running from June 4 to July 4.

The Chicago-born (and based) artist has a history with consumerism. His work has repeatedly exploited and exposed the consumer cultures that surround him, participating in the 89+ panel ‘Branding’ and contributing works to shows with titles like Brand Innovations for Ubiquitous Authorship and Personal Belongings.

For his latest show at Levy Deval, Khek presents a press release in the form of a travelogue, with a paragraph introducing the itinerary. Perhaps the materials mentioned—a blue pen, xeroxed essays, 13¢, iron—hint to the materials that we will see in the Khek’s show; he has a way of including the unusual (rotting bananas, anyone) in this installations. Then again, maybe not.
