Unburial Rites

Vigo Gallery21 Dering Street, London W1S 1AL
14 January – 11 February 2015

Unburial rites is Kadar Brock’s second solo show at Vigo Gallery, London.

Comprised of several distinct series of paintings and sculptures generated by interrelated processes, unburial rites presents a microcosm of Brock’s practice. Ideas, energy and matter generate an ecosystem in which repetitive actions deconstruct the fetishization of mark making.  The ‘hand of the artist’ loses its privilege and is subjugated to a system of rituals — these physical litanies supplant the autonomous gesture and act as a conduit to the sublime.
