Press review : Pat McCarthy / Entre Art et Litterature in Transversales
Delire Gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition in Europe of American artist Pat McCarthy. PDF
Pat McCarthy is a multifaceted artist. Pigeon flyer, road-kid, poet, seller of sandwiches on the run. His time is not spent in the studio but 'in the field', exploring transience as a medium to draw complex conceptual narratives, both social and personal. He was born in 1987 in Danbury, USA, outside of New York City. At age 19 he began simultaneous apprenticeships under New-York sculptors Tom Sachs and JJ PEET. After 3 years of tutelage, he left New-York to live as a ‘road-kid’, perpetually traveling on foot extensively within the USA and numerous countries in Europe and Asia. In 2009, he began the fanzine Born to Kill. This printed medium intimately relays performance, adventure, sculpture, and the artist’s often poetic and biographical prose.
For the first time will be presented the whole series of his 'ongoing' fanzines Born to Kill and new sculptures at the Delire Gallery, Brussels.
Pat McCarthy is recently considered in Artreview magazine as one of the Future Greats. He was presented by Maurizio Cattelan and Massimiliano Gioni in Family Business and has recently exhibited in the group exhibition "La derniere vague" at 'la Friche Belle de Mai' in Marseille, curated by Richard Leydier.
