Nigel Howlett and the "Means of Opposites" Comes to Los Angeles
We love when a Radio Juxtapoz alum makes his way across to (one) of our neck of the woods, and we have been anticipating London-based Nigel Howlett's new solo show, Means of Opposites, opening at Anat Ebgi in Los Angeles. In an era where it seems like so many conversations are talking about the challenges, reasoning and permutations of AI technology in our daily lives, Howlett's work appears to have a mechanical, post-human characteristic. But the highly-detailed, monochromatic works are very much of the human hand, inspired by 12th century Persian poems and Picasso.
"I’m interested in transhumanism and our evolution as a species which is where the futuristic suit and robotic gloves come from," Howlett told us a few years back. And yet, it feels more human than ever. —Evan Pricco
