This event has ended.

Freight+Volume presents Bone Pendulum in Motley, the exhibition of mixed media sculpture by Johnston Foster. The exhibition will run from October 11th through November 10th.

Expanding upon motifs suggested in Souvenirs of the Suzerain, the artist’s 2018 exhibition at Arts+Leisure, the works on display deconstruct the material scaffolding of our built environment, prompting the viewer to re-examine the material fabric of their daily lives and its relation to overarching natural cycles of death and decomposition. Radically recontextualizing the ubiquitous, otherwise banal plastics and disposable detritus of post-Capitalist society, Foster’s work probes the bounds of sculpture and assemblage; laying bare the seams of his practice by exposing bits of PVS garden hose and coax cable, among an encyclopedic array of other debris, Foster’s work simultaneously unravels and compresses, waxing and waning between parallel narratives of physical drama and metaphoric suggestion.
