Luxembourg & Dayan will present Die Hexe, a solo exhibition by Alex Da Corte. For Die Hexe (“The Witch” in German), Da Corte has created a site-specific installation that consumes the gallery’s East 77th Street townhouse, turning it into an implausible cross between a dollhouse and a haunted house. Here visitors will take on a journey through familiar imagery and obscure biographical references that mingle, repeat, trade places, and morph into new provocations that invite reflections upon memory, impulse, the stability of knowledge, and what constitutes value in a work of art.
Da Corte’s largest installation to date, Die Hexe will remain on view through April 11th, 2015. The exhibition will introduce a broader audience to the work of an admired Philadelphia-based artist whose first major museum solo exhibition will open at Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (Mass MoCA) in March 2016.
