Running through April 6, 2011 is Nick van Woert’s Breaking and Entering exhibition at Yvon Lambert in New York City, his first solo show which features all new sculptures.
For this exhibition, van Woert dissects found sculptures, often presenting the works as manipulated versions of their former selves. Breaking and Entering also refers to a recent robbery at van Woertʼs studio, in which thieves broke a window to enter the space. This was a formative experience for the artist, as the force used by the intruders to enter and alter his environment reflects the motives behind van Woertʼs own sculptural practice.
