Roger Hiorns

Opening reception: Friday, September 5, 6-8pm

Luhring Augustine is pleased to announce the first New York solo exhibition by the London-based artist Roger Hiorns. Hiorns’ work generates and inhabits interstices between dissentient ideas: construction and destruction; the theological and the technological; temporality and permanence; authoritarian control and organic spontaneity. His objects are suffused with an unease that ties them, and our experience of them, to the amorphous, unrelenting global anxiety which permeates/underscores our everyday understanding and reality.

The upcoming exhibition will be comprised of recent object work in a variety of media.

Roger Hiorns (born 1975, Birmingham, England) lives and works in London. He has been featured in a number of exhibitions at institutions throughout Europe and the Americas, including the Biennale of Venice; MoMA PS1, Long Island City, NY; Tate Modern, London; the Armand Hammer Museum of Art at UCLA, Los Angeles, CA; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN; and De Hallen, Haarlem, The Netherlands. Hiorns’ work is included in such institutional collections as the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Art Institute of Chicago; and Tate Modern, London. In 2009, Hiorns was nominated for the Turner Prize for his critically acclaimed work, Seizure, a massive crystallization within the interior of a bedsit in a condemned South London council estate. In 2011, Seizure was acquired by the Arts Council Collection and is currently on a ten-year loan for exhibition at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in Yorkshire, England.
