Debris and Detritus in Bushwick
Every day on your way to work you may notice some sort of trash or debris on the side of the street. Patrick Berran and Jack Henry joined forces to sculpt and mold segments of roadside debris. These works of art resemble trash compacted into earth’s layers. Those average plastic bags you throw away are eaves into textiles or even plastic baskets. This exhibition is nowhere near “trashy.”
