Teaser: Paul Insect @ Fifty24SF Gallery

AM friend Rhinomilk sent some pics of setup for the Paul Insect show at Fifty24F Gallery for our readers to peruse.  This show, his first solo in the States, is entitled “Idea of Freedom” and will open tomorrow night in SF. “The exhibition aims to bring to our attention how our ‘idea of freedom’ is simply a facade for technology’s overbearing reach into our everyday lives and happiness.

This version has various photo-realistic people as well as cartoons peeping through or sticking fingers out through vents and ducts.  These are photo-based, re-painted stickers, mounted on plastic and then glued on walls/doors.  I think if it was dark and you came upon these suddenly, it could be quite […]
