Artis Presents

As part of Armory Week’s Chelsea day, Artis presented a special studio visit with Nir Hod and a preview of his new works on display at Paul Kasmin Gallery. In his videos, sculptures and realist paintings, Nir Hod creates luxuriously stylized worlds of beauty, loneliness, glamour and death. As Richard Vine wrote in the catalogue for Hod’s survey exhibition at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, “From the beginning of his career, Nir Hod has opposed the ideology that labels sumptuousness as an aesthetic sin. His work openly substitutes the pleasure principle and a fluid multiplicity of selves for the old notions of high seriousness and personal authenticity.”
