Event Description

Anat Ebgi is pleased to announce Not Right Now, the gallery’s fourth exhibition with American artist Elias Hansen. The exhibition will be on view from November 4 through December 16, the opening reception is from 4-6PM. The gallery is located at 2660 S La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles. Concurrently, a sister-show of Hansen’s work will run at Team (bungalow), located at 306 Windward Avenue in Venice, CA, from October 29 – December 17th.

Not Right Now is an ambitious installation consisting of two major sculptures. The exhibition’s centerpiece is a 400lb spidery chandelier from which hangs mismatched assortment of beakers and bulbs, some of which emit colorful light. Several smaller works consist of pairs of elegant blown glass objects, set into roughhewn wooden fixtures. With this show, Hansen exhibits a fascination with modes of display and the marriage of disparate materials: the delicate pipettes, flasks and beakers and their rugged driftwood armatures are given equal visual priority.

The other major sculpture is one of Hansen’s so-called “fountains” – elaborately jerry-rigged contraptions featuring buckets, hoses and light fixtures, which pour and recycle supplies of water. The simultaneous appearances of functionality and futility represent a central theme in Hansens’ oeuvre; the artist seeks to confound our dichotomous conceptions of decorative and utilitarian objects. The sculpture becomes a site of erasure, removing the lines of necessity and luxury, amateur and professional creativity.

The show at Team (bungalow) is comprised of a chandelier and fountain as well. However rather than displaying the pieces in an austere gallery space, the works will be installed to overwhelm the domestic setting of the bungalow, offering the viewer a radically altered perspective from which to engage the sculptures.

Elias Hansen (b.1979) has been the subject of solo exhibitions both stateside and abroad. Hansen lives and works in the Pacific Northwest.
