Artist Tyler Coburn will present a new monologue, Richard Roe, performed by actress Birgit Huppuch. The monologue is a hydra-headed take on the legal fictions that creep around the margins of selfhood, and that increasingly dictate the terms of economic and political process.
Coburn’s work has been presented at Centre Pompidou, Paris; South London Gallery; Kunsthalle Wien; Kunstverein Munich; SculptureCenter, New York; and in the 11th Gwangju Biennale and in the 10th Shanghai Biennale. Coburn’s latest solo exhibition, Remote Viewer, is on view at Koenig & Clinton, New York from April 20th to June 3rd.
