Abner Preis: The Plague Doctors

About This Project

Sculptures, video, salvaged toys and fire drawings open the door to mythological variants united by histories of plagues, protectors, healings and unhinged joy in the first presentation of new studio works by Abner Preis (2010 – 2013). ‘The Plague Doctors’ builds on Preis’ object based story telling works, ‘The Lagoon,’ (CC Strombeek, 2010) and ‘The Clown,’  (Tent, Rotterdam, 2011) as well as recent performance based research projects, ‘Turnbuckle Garage’ (Twente Biennale, 2013) and ‘the Superhero Project’ (various, ongoing). Having collaborated on each of these endeavors, Harlan Levey Projects is very pleased to announce the first solo exhibition by Abner Preis in our new space.
