No Fear new work by Andrew Nigon and Carmen Tiffany


Space 1026 is kicking off summer with a new exhibition featuring the work of Andrew Nigon and Carmen Tiffany visiting artists from Miami, FL.

No Fear comprises of sculpture, video and prints that are inspiration for punching onward, even in moments of ambivalence.

Inspired by historic fratricidal narratives, Andrew Nigon has created antiheroic wrestlers that fragment their aggression with a reckless assemblage. Plastic body parts made from casts of Nigon’s own body are displayed solely to subvert the figures unbridled malice.

Carmen Tiffany’s puppet play video narrates young characters that might be bullied by Nigon’s fighting brothers. The troupe travels together in a play like adventure on the way to their grown up future. Fulfilling a cycle of destitution the characters accept their fate with a naivety that is both sullen and joyful.

Works grasp tightly as they dangle from the bottom of the social ladder, but as primal behaviors are forced out of a survivalist’s instinct they face a state of a menial existence with abrasive tendencies.
