D’Amelio Terras, New York
February 26 – April 16, 2011

D’Amelio Terras is pleased to present R.F.C.P., a collaboration of works by Roland Flexner and Chloe Piene.

Roland Flexner: Talking about contemporary Vanitas is something of a paradox when the thematic no longer relies on philosophical and moral values. Things happen in real time rather than at a symbolic level. There is the comical and the performative, the passage of time, the popular culture, punk and all that –

Chloe Piene: But with popular culture, and punk, it’s a mark of rebellion. A pirate flag.

RF: It was, but now… go to the shops. Recuperation is the grand law of history.

CP: And fashion.

What about the skull?
