Bruce Brosnan: See, hear, remember/Tyler Vlahovich: recent work
Bruce Brosnan began exhibiting with Feature Inc. in 2000 and See, hear, remember is his fourth one-person exhibition witht he gallery. He lives and works in Brooklyn, has a BFA from Maine College of Art (19915) and an MFA from Hunter College (1998), which is where I first saw his inspired installations. Tyler Vlahovich has a BFA (1989) from California Institute of the Arts and lives and works in Los Angeles. This recent work is his third one-person exhibition with the gallery and coincidentally, we also began working together in 2000.
BOTANICA is a creepy futuristic black comedy that examines our complicated relationship to plant life. Sealed in a human terrarium, two unorthodox botanists and a caretaker with a penchant for erotic literature unleash a flood of unusual findings and overturn the constraints of science and social norms. Riotously lush” and “a perverse kick.” -New York Times “Sex, drugs, and
botany? Plants will never seem the same after Jim Findlay’s BOTANICA, an original, mesmerizing, and disturbing piece of experimental insanity.” Flavorpill “If you’ve had your fill of tame/lame Broadway shows, are a fan of Sci-Fi, and happen to have dendrophilia, this show is perfect for you.” Papermag “If you’re into what’s probably the most expertly sculpted piece of weirdness in town, then I assure you, BOTANICA’s got the goods.” NYtheatre.com
