Perrotin New York presents Late Night Enterprise.

Late Night Enterprise considers how nocturnal economies — romantic, monetary, and corporeal, alike — act as a foil to the sleek logic of daytime activities. French philosopher Michel Foucault, in Utopian Bodies, described nighttime as when “the body is torn away from its proper space and projected into another space.” This space becomes a social elsewhere, an imperfect mirror of our 24-hour economy. There, the logic of consumption fades, and another economy emerges: hyperreal pleasure, extreme ecstasy, and immense danger find their own rhythm and release. Participating artists embrace this theory, exploring the inner productivity of nighttime through their work.
