Gardar Eide Einarsson - Infinite Crisis (2012), Home Alone Gallery – Photos by D. Creahan
Tucked away on Franklin Street at the edge of TriBeCa, Home Alone Gallery sits with its artwork exposed to the street. Taking cues from well-regarded venues like Maurizio Cattelan’s Wrong Gallery, the exhibition space turns the street itself into a gallery, easily accessible by any pedestrian. Conceived by artists Nate Lowman, Hanna Liden and Leo Fitzpatrick, the Home Alone Gallery takes joy in simplicity, showing a single piece from its small storefront window.
Gardar Eide Einarsson - (2012), Home Alone Gallery
Home Alone opened last month, exhibiting Paul McCarthy’s sculpture Brancusi Tree. Now, Infinite Crisis, a piece by Norwegian artist Gardar Eide Einarsson is currently on view. An appropriation of the logo from Detective Comics’ Infinite Crisis series, the sculpture recalls the themes of the series: the nature of heroism and nostalgia for a perceived “golden-age” of nobility; paralleled with the apparent socio-econonomic instability of contemporary society.
The venue’s proprietors plan on changing the exhibition monthly, and all works are “on view” weekdays from 1PM to 9PM.
