Nathan Coley (born Glasgow, 1967, lives and works in Dundee) investigates the social aspects of our built environment in works in a diverse range of media including public and gallery-based sculpture, photography, drawing and video. Following the critical and popular success of his retrospective at The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh (22 May – 18 July 2004), Haunch of Venison is delighted to present Coley’s first solo exhibition in London, which includes a selection of new and existing works.
Brian Alfred (born Pittsburgh in 1973, lives and works in New York) is an emerging artist known for his works that engage with the nature of contemporary society that is dominated by digital media.
Conspiracy?, Alfred’s first solo show in the UK, presents paintings, collages and a video animation of cityscapes, landscapes and interiors that refer to some of the many different corporate and government conspiracy theories that circulate in our information-saturated culture. Gathered from the media and the internet, the paintings titles refer to phenomenon, as in Crop Circles, 2004, as well as specific events, for example Watergate, a streetscape of the infamous building from 2004.
