Pierre Bismuth


Currently on view at the Mary Boone Gallery in both the Fifth Avenue and Chelsea locations as well as with Team Gallery in New York are works by premiere French conceptual artist Pierre Bismuth titled “One Size Fits All.” The artist is known for his deconstruction of cultural products and reconstitution of material in which his subjects undergo to reveal the structures of mass media products, the mechanisms of visibility and systems of name recognition and context. At Mary Boone in Chelsea, the artist has taken the exhibition’s ad in Artforum and Art in America and has blown up the image to a mass scale in order to have the gallery present the magazine as opposed to the normal construct of having the magazine present the gallery. Even the works of other gallery ads are presented on the back and titled “The Flip Side of My Work.” Bismuth lives and works in London and Brussels. Last year, the artist exhibited works at the Santa Monica Museum of Art and with Galerie Erna Hecey and Galerie Jan Mot in Brussels. Bismuth was recently featured in “Space Redefined in Chelsea” in the Art Review section of The New York Times.
