galerie antoine ertaskiran in association with LIBRALATO is proud to present Jon Rafman’s HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL. In this exhibition, Rafman continues his exploration of the deep web. Combining sculpture, installation, and video, Rafman captures contemporary experience as mediated through virtual worlds. Pulling from the visual vernacular of internet troll caves, and obscure online subcultures, Rafman finds the sublime in the abject – revealing both the possibilities and limitations of digital technologies.
HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL is presented in parallel to Jon Rafman’s installation during the Power Ball, The Power Plant’s yearly fundraiser, which this year pays tribute to the transformations that have occurred as a result of the digital revolution.
Opening: Wednesday June 4, 5-8pm
June 4 – June 28, 2014
