Nick DARMSTAEDTER
Fuddruckers

Opening on Friday March 14, 2014, 2 pm - 7 pm
On view until May 3, 2014, from Tuesday to Saturday, 2 pm to 7 pm

For his second exhibition at Bugada & Cargnel gallery, Nick DARMSTAEDTER (born in 1988 in Los Angeles, lives and works in New York) takes a look at the ultra-contemporary aspect of electronic spamming through a new series of oil and silkscreen paintings. The exhibition explores the notions of readymade and reappropriation, a thread that weaves through much of the artist's work, questioning the aesthetic aspect of the most mundane contemporary productions. The title of the exhibition, Fuddruckers, is borrowed from an American fast food chain that tends to compensate for the lack of quality by quantity, just like spams. This reference immediately sets the show in an ambiguous relationship to a form of culture that is both massive and personal, despised and popular, oriented towards efficiency more than aesthetics, while possessing a certain beauty.
