DIRECTIONS: SERGEI ISUPOV

April 28–July 22, 2018
Ferrin Contemporary
1315 MASS MoCA Way, North Adams, MA

Ferrin Contemporary presents DIRECTIONS: Sergei Isupov, the first exhibition in a series in which the gallery will shine focus on artists whose recent work captures a transitional moment in their creative process. The DIRECTIONS series shows results from technical experimentation and explores the development of new installation concepts.

First to be presented is work by Sergei Isupov, whose sculpture titled Directions, inspired the series. A larger-than-life, authoritarian figure, the sculpture points towards a group of the artist’s smaller porcelain works which explore a range of ideas leading in new directions. Isupov, an established sculptor based in Cummington, MA, and Tallinn, Estonia, is world known for his surrealistic, figure-ground personal narratives which simultaneously integrate painted imagery and dimensional surfaces.
