HUNTER LONGE’S “DEGAUSSER”

Posted in Uncategorized by deadlyserious on May 26, 2011

On April 15th, Drop City Contributor, Hunter Longe launched his first solo show “DEGAUSSER” at The Popular Workshop in San Francisco. The exhibition was centered around the theme of magnetism, erasers and their side effects, distortion and obscuration. Longe explains, “I’ve been trying to be as reflexive as possible about process and my influences. In many cases this has taken the form of distorting other artist’s work, while attempting to contribute to art as a dialogue.”

Take a look at some photos of the exhibition along with the limited edition, COMUNE sponsored show poster. Unlike any typical show flyer, the exhibition poster documented Hunters central lapsed eraser piece along with actual distorted Helvetica lettering manipulated by the Degausser process.  Check it out.

Following the exhibition, Longe has received some insightful coverage depicting the shows use of “literal and conceptual manifestations of magnetism and polarity.” Take a look here: Jessica Brier on DEGAUSSER
