JUPITER ISLAND | ROBERT ANDRADE. DEBRA BARRERA. WILLIAM BINNIE. KAYLA LEWIS. SOO SHIN. JENYU WANG. HYOUNSANG YOO. | 17 OCTOBER – 14 NOVEMBER 2015
Circuit 12 Contemporary is pleased to present Jupiter Island, a group show organized by Lauren Fulton. The title of the exhibition – a reference to artist Cy Twombly’s fragile and monumental sculptures produced in Jupiter Island, Florida during the year 1992 – showcases the work of eight artists, each considering notions of isolation, remoteness, and anticipation of the unknown. Expounding on such ideas through a variety of media, their practices reflect on mass media and the manipulation of memory; militaristic strategy and violence; and questions of blind faith and afterlife. Jupiter Island, like Twombly’s own untitled constructions, juxtaposes the organic with the artificial, presents coarse, poignant subject matter, and embraces the intersection of art with science and technology.
