On the Brink at Dean Project Featuring New Works by Tim Berg & Rebekah Myers

Last night, Dean Project opened "On the Brink" featuring the second solo exhibition of the collaborative team: Tim Berg and Rebekah Myers. Continuing with their exploration of ideas of material value and the consequences of the actions we take to satisfy our desires, Berg-Myers have created a new body of works. This current exhibition is meant to provide the viewers with objects-situations where our choices are put to the test in how we understand the value of the things we do. Some of the works in the exhibition have titles such as “All that glitters” and “As good as gold” which echo marketing tools employed in our contemporary culture to attract with a promise of guaranteed satisfaction if consumed.  Other works, such as “Against the tide “ and “Souvenirs” are examples of how the polar bear could become extinct do to our treatment of the environment. Eventually nature will remain present in our culture in the form of man- made objects that represent what once was real. These man-made objects end up in our homes where we will value them without realizing that they represent the real thing. The exhibition dates are: September 15 - October 29, 2011 and Dean Project is located at 511 West 25th Street, 2nd Floor in New York City.
