Sascha Braunig: Shivers
On View October 23, 2016-March 5, 2017
In the MoMA PS1 one of the exhibits is the rethought portraits of Sascha Braunig’s Shivers. The exhibit features pieces of Braunig’s from over the past five years which show highly rendered portraits that depicts sculptural constructs. The pieces are held in a rectangular room with one wall in the middle towards the back third of the room that is open on both sides and breaks up the space, making the back a little bit more closed. The pieces hanging in the back space towards the corner can be seen from across the gallery. They appear to be three-dimensional until you approach the pieces to see that they are still just paintings.
