Craig Drennen: Bandits & Chorus
Adelphi University is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Craig Drennen at the Adele and Herbert J. Klapper Art Gallery in the University Center.
This exhibition will feature works from the artists’ Bandit and Chorus series which are both a part of a greater project focused on Shakespeare’s Timon of Athens.
In the artist’s own words:
Since 2008 I have organized my studio practice around Shakespeare’s Timon of Athens. For each character in the play I produce a distinct body of work, resulting in a collection of related pieces composed of separately considered parts. I also am interested in the concept of “edgeland” as articulated by the Lettrist and Situationist groups. An “edgeland” is a provisional zone at the outer fringe of cities where the urban blends into the rural, a district with fewer restrictions and the potential for greater freedom. I believe the canon also has an “edgeland” where things break down, and Timon of Athens locates me there.
