‘The Witch’ By Alex Da Corte At Luxembourg & Dayan

Art in New York. Beginning one week from today, on February 26, 2015, Luxembourg & Dayan will present Die Hexe, a solo exhibition by Alex Da Corte.

For Die Hexe (“The Witch” in German), Da Corte has created a site-specific installation that consumes the gallery’s entire East 77th Street townhouse, transforming it into an implausible cross between a dollhouse and a haunted house. Here visitors will take on a journey through surreal interiors where familiar imagery and obscure biographical references mingle, repeat, trade places, and morph into new provocations that invite reflections upon memory, impulse, the stability of knowledge, and what constitutes value in a work of art. Works by the artist’s heroes and friends – including Mike Kelley, Robert Gober, and Haim Steinbach – will be slyly inserted into the environment, hiding in plain sight.

The exhibition will introduce a broader audience to the work of an admired Philadelphia- based artist whose first major museum solo exhibition will open at Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) in March 2016.

Die Hexe is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue featuring an essay by William Pym and a text by Alex Da Corte.
