David Altmejd’s ‘The Vibrating Man’ Takes Over White Cube Hong Kong

by Andy SmithPosted on

David Altmejd‘s mindbending sculptures return in a new show at White Cube Hong Kong. In “The Vibrating Man,” running through May 18, the artist offers his transforming figures and busts, each its on unsettling, yet absorbing mutation. Instead of any given piece having its own meaning, the artist has said he prefer “it to be able to generate its own meaning.” Altmejd was last featured on HiFructose.com here.

“Altmejd has described his practice as one grounded in a ‘fascination with nature, a taste for the uncanny and an excitement for unpredictable things, things that transform and that are difficult to describe,’” the gallery says. “Like living organisms, his works appear always in flux, transforming and metamorphosing, radiating an animistic energy. Altmejd collapses different narrative strands and visual points of reference to allow for multiple simultaneous readings and thematic associations.”
